Wine Description

Fact Sheet

Intense nose with Malbec traces of ripe, sweet plum and blackberry laced with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot spice fragances. Barrel aging provides further complexity with delicate oak and vanilla flavors. This unctuous and jammy wine is ideal with honey glazed pork, grilled sirloin steak with orange sauce and lamb tagine recipes.
