Briar and wild herb notes accent the racy plum and blackberry fruit in this medium-bodied red, as hints of tar and tobacco chime in on the solid finish. Drink now.
The double fermentation of Malbec grapes with a percentage of slightly dried Corvina grapes lends the wine a wealth in aroma and structure, elegant tannins and softness that combine to produce a superior wine with ageing potential.
