Deep garnet in the glass with an intense black cherry and vanilla bouquet. On the palate, it is full bodied, rich and creamy with smooth tannins. At 16% alcohol, it should really be a monster; in reality, it is fantastically balanced with a minerality which keeps it fresh and dangerously moreish.

A 'Joven-style' red exhibiting freshness and purity. Berry-bright and fresh with suggestion of cherry blossom, it has gentle fruit jelly glycerol up front, yielding to finely-grained crunchy tannins, with good length and gentle closing acidity.
Made by the Catena family, this is a rich, cassis-laden Cabernet with ripe blackcurrant and plum fruit all over the place. A hint of minty eucalyptus and toasty oak spice add depth and complexity. Smooth tannins and freshness.
Made by the Catena family, this fantastic Malbec offers bright black cherry aromas with floral notes and a touch of spice. Tasting Note:Showing ripe dark berry fruit along with nice spicy notes. The mouth feel is full yet soft and supple, with black raspberry and currant flavours mingled with notes of sweet spice and a touch of leather. The finish is long and persistent with soft, sweet tannins.
This red wine is made from a grape variety indigenous to Spain called Merenzao. It has flavours of juicy red fruit, a smooth mouth feel and some mineral flavours too.
