Red-violet in color, brilliant and vivid, our Apaltagua Gran Reserva Envero shows ripe blackberries, tobacco, and spices. It possesses a remarkable combination of ripe fruit notes and oak mixed with vanilla. Its flavor is juicy, full, and concentrated,highlighting the softness in the mouth and the raspberry and plum tannins with a touch of tobacco.

 

Criss Cross Petite Syrah

Excellent density and richness, with the black fruit staying bold and upfront on the palate. It rounds itself nicely in the finish, staying grapey to the end.
