Mi Estancia Reserve • Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes

This interesting fusion of Malbec and Cabernet Franc renders a wine showing intense reds and deep undertones. Its aroma intertwines fragrances spiced with hints of marmalade red fruit, which result from having rested in oak barrels for 13 months. It leaves full-body sensations and good structure in the mouth, showing the presence of agreeable tannins and leaving behind pleasant lingering memories. As this wine is a natural product, delicately treated during its stabilization, bottles may occasionally contain small precipitates.
