Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

A blend of 50% Malbec, 24% Cab Franc, 18% Merlot & 8% Cab Sauv. Aged in 100% new French oak but in 2013, half of the wine was put in smaller 160 liter oak barrels and I read that Santiago Achaval claims the fruit is more expressive, wow I would not have thought that. Aromas of fruit and floral scents with slightest waft of cedar was present, makes the aforementioned statement somewhat true. Raspberry and cherry flavors, hints of spice, fine tannins, well balanced lingering ending with juicy mineral finish. Nice, Great value!
