This inky Cabernet-dominated wine explodes from the glass with a flamboyant and enchanting bouquet of freshly picked flowers. Malbec contributes precision and levity on the palate. These two features are defining characteristics of the truly great wines of the world. It is a sensation of density of fruit on the palate without being cloying. The wine is brimming with black and red fruits and just a whisper of oak. The tannins are luscious but structured to age magnificently. The balance is perfect. This wine is our flagship effort and I believe you’ll find it represents that exceptionally!
