TASTING NOTES:

Corralillo Winemaker’s Blend is a bright and intense red with violet hues. The nose shows deep red fruit aromas, along with cocoa and spices. It has a fairly complete palate, medium-bodied with round and smooth tannins. Each of the four grape varieties in the wine contribute different taste characteristics – the Syrah delivers spiciness, as well as violets and damp earth; the Malbec adds floral and berry notes; the Cabernet Franc gives the wine structure and tannins and the Petite Verdot adds the final touch to the blend. The result is a complex and long-lasting wine with well-integrated oak.
