Winemaker's Notes:

The color is ruby red with tints of violet. The aroma rich in fruit, reminiscent of plum, black fruits, blackberries and violets.

The palate shows great structure and well-balanced acidity. The tannins feel soft and pleasant, with marked roundness and a strong fruity 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.
