Bodega Ruca Malen Petit Verdot Terroir Series 2016

Bodega Ruca Malen Petit Verdot displays intense aromas of fresh plums and cherries which are harmoniously balanced by subtle notes of rose and sweet spices and mild hints of caramel, vanilla, and mocha. A full-bodied wine with concentrated fruit flavors, a balanced acidity, and a velvety texture. Sweet tannins linger through the persistent, lengthy finish. Ruca Malen Petit Verdot is aged in 80% French and 20% American new and second-use oak barrels for 12 months.

Fantastic Petit Verdot from Argentina

Fantastic wine. Great depth of flavour, smooth and lovely fruit. Well balanced all round winner. I made my first order with Hic by finding this wine after I had recently ordered it in a restaurant and was very impressed.
