Saurus Select Malbec 2014
At sight it has a very intense purplish red color with ruby reflections. On the nose it is complex, combining aromas of ripe red fruits, such as currants, plums and cherries, as well as notes of spices. Its oak aging provides a touch of vanilla and coffee. On the palate it has a very good attack, with sweet and juicy tannins. It is a persistent and elegant wine.
Suggested Price: $ 165
