Winemaker’s comments: Intense ruby-red in color, this wine is expressive and very floral with notes of black fruit and “dulce de leche” (a thick milk-based jam). On the palate, this medium-bodied wine is fresh with notes of apricot and soft toast. Its finish is juicy with medium persistence.
Food pairings: This wine pairs with lean red meat, white meat, ham, pasta dishes and fruit marinated in wine. Best served at between 16ºC and 18ºC.
Cellaring Recommendations: 2 to 3 years.
