Winemaker's Notes:

This exceptional harvest produced a wine of vibrant purple-red color and intense aromatics of exotic berries and sweet French oak. The flavors are expansive and ripe, reminiscent of black berries and plums. The finish is well-balanced between soft, ripe fruit tannins and sweet oak.
My Notes:

About Gascon:

Tradition and innovation blended harmoniously when a spirited Don Miguel Escorihuela sailed penniless from Spain to Argentina in 1880. Four years later, he purchased 42 acres of land that would become the cornerstone of an exceptional wine making history.

Don Miguel Escorihuela Gascón and his descendants became known in Argentina for their consistently outstanding wines and for their unconventional undertakings.
