  Winemaker´s Notes



This brilliant blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon & 50% Malbec represents the true richness of the Uco Valley. On the nose, full bodied fruit aromas of cherry, marmalade & plum are present. The mouth feel combines the mature fruit essence with rich spices of vanilla & chocolate from the time in oak. Persistent structure and silky tannins leaving for a long and lasting finish.
