It is a violet-colored, alcoholic wine, susceptible to aging very well. It has a sweet and spicy aftertaste. Over time it offers greater complexity and depth of aromas. It has a combination of fresh fruit, sweetness, subtlety and even some stone and minerals. Mocha, figs, honey and cherries. It has a precise and forceful flavor that fills the mouth with elegance.

This Las Compuertas comes from the zone of the same name, from very old vineyards planted more than 100 years ago on alluvial soils on the northern bank of the Mendoza River, more than 1,000 meters above sea level. It’s a red with deep flavors, rich herbal notes, and most of all, spicy and sweet tones. The texture is very smooth, and the fruity sensation is persistent and lasts until the end in a malbec that’s smooth and ready for a meaty stew.

Black cherries, coffee and roses follow through to a medium to full body, fine tannins and long, creamy-textured finish. Nicely crafted. Drink or hold.
