The nose showed intense dark fruits, spiced cookie and rosemary with an undercurrent of dusty stone and minerals. On the palate this was rich yet detailed and structured with flavors of ripe, dark fruits followed by hints of herbs and cranberry carrying through the cheek-puckering finish. The balance of ripe fruit and structure here is stunning as it carries it's 15% alcohol effortlessly.

Ripe plums, raisin and other dry fruits fill the mouth balancing black cherry flavours typical of the Bonarda. The bodega is situated in the foothills of the Andes in the Cafayate region around Salta in Northwest Argentina in one of the most scenic regions of this country. The vineyards are planted at 1,700 metres making them the highest commercial sites in the world. Cool climate plays a key part with great variations between night and day time temperatures, slowing down the ripening cycle and ensuring the development of good varietal character. The hallmark of Salta red wines is the great intensity of colour. Michel Torino is well recognised on the international market and is renowned for its excellent wine quality, elegant label design and premium presentation. Grapes : Cabernet Sauvignon 40%, Malbec 35%, Bonarda 15%, Tannat 5% and Syrah 5% Region : Argentina / Salta / Cafayate Maker : Alejandro Pepa Notes : A symphony of flavours. Ripe plums, raisin and other dry fruits fill the mouth balancing black cherry flavours typical of the Bonarda. Cabernet adds a spicy character. Exceptional tannic balance that leaves a very long velvety finish. Serve : Ideal with grilled meats, spicy meat dishes and stews. Also good with ravioli, olives and tomato sauces or an excellent choice to drink by itself. ABV : 13.5% Suitable for Vegetarians
