Description
This blend is made up of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Syrah, both from Chile’s Central Valley. This ruby red blend with dark red hues has been aged for 12 months in French oak barrels and blended with the best grapes of each variety. The nose captivates with elegant strawberry and blackberry notes that lead to touches of vanilla, toasted coffee and leather, giving it an appealing and wild character. The mouth feel is pleasant and full with a persistent, balanced finish.
