Tasting Notes: A vibrant red Malbec with blackish hues, this wine is full of intense aromas and hints of black fruit, violets, plums with a long finish. Refined and fresh on the palate, it has round and elegant tannins, with refreshing acidity.

Serve With: Excellent with both light and dark meats, it has the intensity and body to stand up to bold flavors and rich sauces.
