Beautiful purplish red in colour. The same original blending of Malbec and Petit Verdot that offers powerful aromas of small red and black fruit such as blackcurrant, blackberry and redcurrant, but also exotic fruit such as mango. Spicy notes appear on the finish with white pepper, cinnamon and thyme. The first palate is dominated by the Malbec, but the Petit Verdot, with pomegranate, liquorice and violet with toasted notes, slowly reveals itself. Once again this year Epicurious is a stunning wine that we invite you to discover!
