Tasting Notes

Ruby- red wine, with good aromatic intensity, and touches of pepper and roasted red pepper, with some paprika or dry pepper, followed by a sweetness given by the red and black fruits. The vanilla aroma blends with the wooden notes and are fully integrated ageing in French oak barrels. A great structure in the mouth is a key feature of this year's vintage. Tannins are well condensed with anthocyanins, adding red hues, and resulting in a roundness and softness in which the typical structure of Cabernet prevails. Valle de Uco produces this varietal with notable structure, which makes it suitable for long- term storage. The body of this wine makes it an ideal match for semi- hard or aged cheeses, or important and complex dishes of spiced red meat or pastas.
