Plenty scents of ripe fruit…

In appearance it is a clear and bright red wine with appealing ruby red colour with purple reflections of medium to high concentration. The tears form and flow colouring slightly the glass with medium viscosity.
It has a beautiful nose of medium aromatic intensity. It has a classic and elegant profile, medium complexity, with a fruity-driven character mixed with different layers of spices and fresh aromas. There are plenty scents of ripe fruit reminiscent of plum, black cherry and blackcurrant. Touches of mint and green bell-pepper. A second nose reveals hints of sweet spices like vanilla, licorice, tobacco leaves, and leather. After aeration it shows notes of violets, wet floor and mushrooms. On the palate it is dry with refreshing acidity and juicy texture. It is medium to full-bodied with compact and textural tannins.
The mid-palate is fluid and fruity with aromas of ripe red and black fruit mixed with sweet spices, such as vanilla, reminiscent of black tea leaves and cocoa, and hints of leather. It has a fresh and fruity aftertaste. Long persistency. Fruit-driven and concentrated wine of classic profile. Still youthful. Very good value for money. On the palate the alcohol feels a little warm and elevated yet.
It can be enjoyed now, although it can benefit from a few years of bottle ageing. Ageing potential approximately 4-6 years. Recommended service temperature 16°C, ideally open 30 minutes before service.
Pairing suggestions:
- Appetizer: Grilled sweetbreads, Andean potatoes and beetroot emulsion
- Main course: Patagonian lamb cooked at low temperature with fried ¨polenta¨ and red bell-pepper reduction from Cachi.
