Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

Intense and brilliant color, with violet reflections. The nose is perceived typicality of Malbec: ripe red fruit and floral aromas. The palate entry denotes a full, soft and lush with sweet tannins and very present, has a final round with notes of cherries, sour cherries and blackberries.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts James Suckling
This has a very impressive nose with rich red and dark berries on offer, as well as a dark stony edge. The palate has a very plush and juicy feel. The attractive and easy-to-drink style here. Drink now.
91 pts Wine Spectator
Concentrated flavors of raspberry ganache and plum tart feature a plush creaminess, accented by Asian spice notes. The long finish is filled with chocolate, mocha and pastry details. Drink now through 2024. 3,000 cases made, 1,400 cases imported. — KM
