Rafael Tirado Wines Vistalago Mezcla Tinta 2016

This 100% estate blend of Merlot, Cab Franc, and Syrah is from the north facing slopes of Rafael Tirados vineyards in Colbún. The wine show notes of strawberries anddelicous red apple encapsulated in baking spices of cinnamon, clove, brown sugar, and caramel. A rich, round mid palate with hints of bacon fat lead to a lush, long finish lifted up with minerality.
