This top cuvée made by the Pelvillain family shows typical black Malbec color, and it has an opulent texture that's packed with notes of rich spice, black plum and balanced wood. While the tannins are present, the fruit offers a full, rich character. With its concentration, this will benefit from several years of aging.
