This vibrant wine comes from vineyards in El Cepillo, La Consulta, and Altamira, all in the San Carlos Department in the southern Uco Valley. It can get very cold there, and we see that here in the very vibrant, fresh, tart red fruit. The wine is medium-bodied with pronounced and enchanting tobacco, tobacco leaf, and herbal notes.
