|| TASTING NOTES:

Intense ruby ​​color, in its aromas Malbec prevails, with its notes of violets and ripe red fruit, accompanied by slight aromas of vanilla and tobacco provided by the aging; behind are spicy and mineral notes that add complexity, along with those of bell peppers and Franc herbs. In the mouth, its entry is saline and smooth; its rough tannins from the Petit Verdot, its significant weight on the palate and its juicy and taut acidity combine to round off an intense but elegant red.
