VARIETAL: 100% Malbec.
VINEYARD: Tupungato, Mendoza.
OAK REGIMEN: 30% New American oak, 30% new French oak and 40% 2° and 3° use American Oak barrels for 7 months.
WINEMAKER: Mariano Di Paola
WINEMAKER NOTES: Trumpeter Malbec displays an inky and dense color with attractive cherry aromas and a touch of cinnamon and sweet spice. A full, fruity wine, with excellent body, intense tannins, and flavors of cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and plum intermingled with hints of cardamom and pepper, and a long, full finish.
Simple, classy and a little restrained, this shows bright Morello cherry and liquorice. A good way to get to know the grape.
