Winemaker's Notes:

This blend is a perfect combination of Malbec and Merlot. It exhibits an intense dark red color with purple hues and an elegant nose with touches of raspberries and mulberries. Aging in new French and American oak barrels for 18 months balances it out with hints of chocolate, tobacco and vanilla. Its palate is large with great volume and consistent intensity. It impacts with its sweetness and long and memorable finish.
My Notes:

About Urraca:

At the beginning of 2005, John Langley and his children, Morgan, Zak and Sara, realized their long-desired dream of making premium wine. After touring the major wine regions of the world, they found their dream location in Agrelo, Argentina. This became the birthplace of Urraca (magpie), a name that gains significance as it evokes the affectionate nickname given by John to his wife, Margaret.
