Mi Estancia Reserve • Bonarda

Tasting Notes

Attractive wine of intense reds with bluish black undertones. It offers interesting aromas of red fruits and spices, and notes of smoke and coffee. On the palate it appears unctuous, balanced, with good structure, complex, with agreeable tannins and a very good aftertaste, which reflects the fact that it rested in oak for more than 14 months. As this wine is a natural product, delicately treated during its stabilization, bottles may occasionally contain small precipitates.
