Carmelita Vista Malbec 2013 is intense ruby red in the glass and has a fresh, fruity nose with a progressive bloom of black cherry, plum and violet aromas. In the mouth it has a gentle elegance balanced with strength and structure from maturation in oak. The beautiful finish will continue to elongate with time.
