Winemaker's Notes: This is a wine that comes from our vineyards of Gualtallary, a parcel of grapes Cabernet Franc clone 7 that produces grapes of great quality with very low yield, harvesting them at their right moment of maturity we obtain a wine of very particular characteristics, very Fruity with presence of black fruits and also spices as black pepper and notes of chocolate and tabacco. In the mouth it has high intensity flavors, fine taninns and great structure.

Vivino's users review:"After the success of its Malbec sister two days prior, had to try this for our final night in Buenos Aires. Like the Malbec, served chilled. Gorgeous deep red velvet colour. Cherry and oak notes at first, followed by a smooth bouquet for this highly acidic and highly tannic cab franc"
