Winemaker's Notes:

Vivacious red with violet sparkles. A noble tear indicates its firm structure. Plum jam and raisin combined with pipe tobacco, vanilla and toasted notes dominate the aromas. Very well balanced with sweet and soft tannins. Fruity, full of plum and chocolate notes. Pleasant finish.
My Notes:

About Michel Torino:

With over 1500 acres of vineyards standing at 5500-6600 feet above sea level, Michel Torino is the most important winery in the Cafayate Valley of Argentina. All of the Michel Torino wines are hand-harvested in the estate's own vineyards. Additionally, Andrés Höy, Torino's production manager, practices sustainable, environmentally- friendly farming by minimizing the use of fertilizers and chemicals in the vineyard. The unique Cafayete climate manifests itself in the elegant, focused profile of Michel Torino's wines. These are wines with an indelible sense of place, wines which complement food rather than overpower, wines which are true to their origin.
