(13.5% alcohol): Healthy dark red. Aromas of cherry, raspberry, mocha, menthol and brown spices. Shows a slightly candied berry quality but harmonious acidity energizes the middle palate Finishes firm and dry, with smooth tannins and a subtle peppery nuance. This wine doesn't have quite the fruit or the sweetness of the Bonarda Armando but it's a bit more suave.

A juicy and delicious red with plum and berry character and hints of chocolate and spice. Full body, round tannins and a savory finish.
