Angélica Zapata Merlot Alta

WINE DESCRIPTION

Of a red violet colour with red ruby hues, the nose combines ripe berry fruit and spicy notes from La Pirámide Vineyard, with enticing black berry flavors obtained at Nicasia Vineyard and Adrianna Vineyard. Light oak hints of vanilla and spice add complexity to its wonderful fragance. On the palate, a soft sweet attack leads to a medium-bodied wine of soft, velvety tannins. Finishes long and lingering.
