Ruca Malen, Petit Verdot
Lujàn de Cuyo, Argentina 2016
Bodega Ruca Malen Petit Verdot displays intense aromas of fresh plums and cherries which are harmoniously balanced by subtle notes of rose and sweet spices and mild hints of caramel, vanilla, and mocha. A full-bodied wine with concentrated fruit flavours, a balanced acidity, and a velvety texture. Sweet tannins linger through the persistent, lengthy finish. Ruca Malen Petit Verdot is aged in 80% French and 20% American new and second-use oak barrels for 12 months.
