Malbec 2012

Carmelita Vista Malbec 2012 has brilliant clarity of ruby port in the glass and a progressive bloom of black cherry and raspberry aromas. The juicy fruit core is balanced with strength and structure from maturation in French oak. The beautiful finish will further tone and elongate with time.
