La Azul Reserve (Cab, Malbec blend)
This is a wine that surprise us beacause of its complexity and intensity. Having a very deep red hue, that can remind us to morello cherries. At the nose it is really intense with red and forest fruits and pepper, assembled with aromas of vanilla and chocolate.Vineyard Place: Agua Amarga, Vista Flores. Valle de uco, Mendoza.
