The nose offers peppery black fruit and smoky notes...hints of charcuterie and bacon fat. This is a big rich opulent red, showing red to black fruit with blackberries and bramble dominating. A distinct note of chocolate carries across the palate. Tannins are present, but not dominating leaving a chalky texture that provides structure for the opulence of fruit. Sourced from a single site vineyard at 1500m in the Uco Valley this is a classy wine for the table or the cellar.
