Tasting Notes
Scruffy, bearded 007 in a tux; refined yet rustic. Appropriate for the most elegant cuisine (or it’s the tantalizing bad boy at a rowdy, spicy barbeque!) A stunningly bright, dark purple hue pronounces the vibrant beauty of its character. Well developed fruit that flexes blackberry and plum while rolling in the dirt with coffee and vanilla laced with just a hint of anis and white pepper. This gaucho has the palate weight and the firm, tight tannins to back it up.
