GAUCHEZCO "RESERVA" - MALBEC

GAUCHEZCO "RESERVA" - MALBEC - Mendoza, ARGENTINA - 2015

Clean, dark-berry aromas are generic as a whole, despite a mild floral note. This violet with graphite hinted wine has a beautiful deep image. It feels firm, fresh and well structured. With concentrated flavours of dark berry fruits and aromas that are lightly herbal, while the finish on the palate is a nice plum, raspberry ganache and blackberry.
