Angélica Zapata Cabernet Franc La Pirámide Vineyard Designated

WINE DESCRIPTION

Of a deep purple color, the nose offers black raspberries and cherries, laced with delicate herbal notes. On the palate, it is an elegant and complex wine, with dark berry fruit and herbs in perfect harmony with subtle oak. A fresh, balanced acidity helps accentuate some mint and eucalyptus notes that lead to a long refreshing finish.
