Carmelita Vista Malbec 2014 is intense ruby port in the glass. The ripe red fruity nose exhibits blooms of black cherry and raspberry aromas. In the mouth it has a subtle elegance balanced with strength and depth from maturation in oak. The beautiful finish will further tone and elongate with time.
