WINE OVERVIEW
An unusual blend from the warmer central vineyards in the high elevation Elqui Valley.

TASTING NOTES
Made in a style similar to old world Italian, this is a very fruit driven wine that is juicy (not jammy). Intense ripe blackberry and plum fruits with a touch of vanilla and spice.

FOOD PAIRING
Pair with grilled meats and Mediterranean dishes.
