Winemaker's Notes

Smooth, fruity, and a touch earthy on the nose, with pure raspberry, plum, and cassis in proper doses. Quite comfortable across the palate, where juicy acids wrestle with full tannins. Finishes big, with chocolate.

Critical Acclaim

"Panel Tasting
"Great purity of fruit with chocolate and plum notes. Firm tannins and generosity of spirit." - J.A.

"Dark fruits, wet stone and herbs on the nose. Creamy, with a soft texture and a lovely, lifted texture on the finish." - P.C.

"Serious stuff – concentrated and solid in structure, dark fruit and spices. Alcohol bothers a little bit, but it is a drinkable wine. A good expression of Malbec." - P.T. "
