Winemaker's Notes

Grape Varieties: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Carmenère, 5% Syrah, 5% Malbec

The oak and the toast of the barrels do not dominate the fruit and bring delicious aromas of coffee, tobacco, cinnamon and crème brûlée. In the mouth, the wine is wonderfully concentrated and juicy. The finish shows intense fruit of cherry and strawberry with a nice touch of licorice. Well balanced, without any heaviness, this velvety and luscious wine is delicious to taste.
