Winemaker's Notes:

Intense red color with purplish highlights.

Fresh cherries on the nose, balanced with toast and vanilla from aging in American oak mixed with notes of strawberry jam in nice balance with reminiscence of rosemary, watermelon, pear and raspberry.

Soft and elegant on the palate, with sweet tannins which remind of raspberry jam. Its aftertaste is fruity with a hint of smoky oak. Well balanced and lingering finish.

My Notes:

About Bodega Septima:

Making stellar wine is the sole focus at Bodega Septima, a pristine winery situated in the acclaimed Mendoza winemaking district of Argentina.

Founded in 1999, the winery was the seventh (in Spanish “septima”) winery introduced by the Codorníu Group, known for its world-famous cava and still wines from Spain and Napa Valley. Imported exclusively by Aveníu Brands, Septima produces authentic wines that are modern, with a nod to tradition.
