DESCRIPTION

A new personality in Mexican Malbec was created with this wine that has more aromatic intensity in color and body. It is a Malbec of the new world with a very different personality than normal. These wines have intense colors, great fruit expression (cherries, plums and prunes), sweet and soft tannins. Excellent for making both young wines and wines with barrel aging. It is a varietal that showcases our terroir very well and performs fantastically. Small batch production. This wine has 22 international medals, including a gold medal at the International Bacchus competition.

TASTING NOTES

Its clean and bright wine with a medium dense ruby red & purple hues

NOSE 

On the nose it is frank with high intensity. Dense notes of plums, bing-cherries, blackberries & blueberries. Floral undertones of lavender & violets alternate with notes of vanilla, elegant oak and the subtle note of leather on the background. It is of high quality aromatics with multiple layers, closing with typical & desirable varietal notes of dark licorice, slight smoke and mineral graphite.

PALATE

The attack on the palate is soft & voluptuous. Tannins are silky and give a rounded balanced body. It is dry, fresh and embracing. Remarkable fresh acidity and well integrated alcohol.
