Wine Tasting Notes
We add a touch of Malbec to the blend to develop a softness in the tannins, making this a smooth and seamless wine. These mouthwatering tannins surround the palate, framing complex elements of black plum and blackcurrant with subtle notes of cocoa. In crafting this wine, our goal is to achieve perfect balance, with the layered fruit notes concentrated in the mid-palate and enveloped by well-integrated toasted oak on the lengthy, elegant finish.
