Winemaker's Notes:

The color has a bright violet color with shades of ebony.
The aroma reminds one of ripe plums, cherries and spice are complemented by a hint of tobacco.
On the palate the wine has flavors of ripe red berries, balanced acidity and sweet tannins leading to a deliciously long finish.
My Notes:

About Bodegas Salentein:

These Estate wines come from the vineyards at La Pampa Estate, El Portillo Estate and San Pablo Estate, in the Upper Valley of the Uco, part of the Tupungato district, 120km south of Mendoza, nestling beneath the Andes. The vineyards are planted at between 1050 and 1500 metres above sea level in ideal micro climates, which produce perfect ripening conditions for the grapes.
