Winemaker Notes

We crafted this bottling from 50% Tempranillo and 50% Malbec to exhibit how well these grapes “play together.” Their combined aromas include figs, exotic perfume, blackberries and blueberries. Dense tannins, balanced acidity and integrated oak flavors create impeccable texture and a lengthy finish.
