Beautiful purplish red in colour. The same original blending of Malbec
and Petit Verdot that offers powerful aromas of small red and black
fruit such as blackcurrant, blackberry and redcurrant, but also exotic
fruit such as mango. Spicy notes appear on the finish with white
pepper, cinnamon and thyme. The first palate is dominated by the
Malbec, but the Petit Verdot, with pomegranate, liquorice and violet
with toasted notes, slowly reveals itself. Once again this year
Epicurious is a stunning wine that we invite you to discover!
