A brilliant, purple-red Malbec with an enticing nose of flowers, ripe red and black fruits mixed with subtle notes of graphite and flint stone. The complexity of the nose develops further with time and air. The palate is creamy, almost greedy with satisfying volume and softness. Fresh, juicy red fruit in the mouth confirms the first impression on the nose. Round, firm tannins, a backbone of well-integrated acidity and bright fruit present a complex and balanced wine. The complexity has developed greatly by ageing in barrel.
An ambitious and toasty red, offering a hot mix of dark cassis, kirsch and plum skin notes backed by firm tannins and tarry finish.
