Its attack is broad and impressive, it flows fresh and fills the palate with a velvety texture. Fair mid-palate, good body and juicy tannins.

OUR SOMMELIER REVIEW

OK, if you think you know about Argentinian wine and you never drank wine from Salta, you’re missing out on an Argentinian gem!
This is the kind of wine that makes me fall in love with what I do.
Here we have the highest vineyards in the world, the heat and light intensity provides vivid and malleable tannins and such intense color you can not believe your eyes.
This outstanding wine has all the black fruit you can imagine: Black cherries, cranberries, figs, prunes, liquorice, walnuts, vainilla, butterscotch, cedar and leather make your palette tingle!
So savory and delicious! You can drink this wine now or even save it until 2029 for optimal flavor.
My advice: You gotta taste this! Make a little Friday night charcuterie board full of hard and sharp cheeses, throw some lamb and vegetables on the grill and serve it with some truffle potatoes.
