"A decadent and rich wine with sliced raw meat and dark fruits. Full body, velvety tannins and lots of ripe, lightly dried fruits. Juicy finish. Old style but I like it this year. Drink now." (JS)

Winery Notes:
This complex yet well balanced wine presents an elegant style with hints of ripe plums and raspberry fruit. Gentle tannins and slightly toasted, spice and chocolate on the palate and a long, lingering focused finish.

Winemaker Notes:
This fine wine is produced using grapes grown in our own Estate located in Las Barrancas, MaipĂș. This zone is considered one of the best wine growing areas in Mendoza, well known for its climate and soil. Cold maceration takes place before fermentation for 48 hours. The winemaking process is carried out in stainless steel tanks and macerated for 15-20 days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for 12 months in new oak barrels: 20% French and 80% American. This wine is aged for 6 months in bottle prior to release.
