This is blend of 78% Cabernet and 22% Malbec.

On the nose, ruby, rich, ripe fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, black plum, dark cherries, strawberries & cherries. Some notes of pyrazines, black licorice, dark cola, vanilla, cinnamon, nice dark spice with medium intensity, dry top soil, dry stones, bright red florals and violets.

On the palate, the body is medium full. The tannins are quite tame, round and sticky. Fruits are nice & ripe; blackberries, black raspberries, black plum, dark cherries, strawberries & cherries. Some notes of pyrazines, black licorice, dark cola, vanilla, cinnamon, nice dark spice with medium intensity, dry top soil, dry stones, bright red florals and violets. The acidity is round and rains over the palate. The finish is ripe, round, elegant, polished. Beautiful.

Från Sydamerikas stora superproducent. Väldigt inställsamt. Gräsig, örtig i doft som sedan övergår mot fatdrag som vanilj. Bra tanin, vanilj, sötfruktig.
