Deep purple hue with aromas of blackberries, currants and violets. Its body is supple and satiny, with the fruit backed with cinnamon and subtly gripping tannins. Refined and elegant expression of Malbec.

This suave, racy red delivers game, crushed cherry and wild berry notes backed by fine tannins and bright acidity. Compact, yet creamy and well-balanced, with a long, savory finish. Drink now through 2018.—N.W.
