Deep, bright ruby red color. It shows sweet red and black fruits, subtle oak and a great backbone of tannins. The red and black fruit aromas followed by an elegant grip over florality comes from the Cabernet Sauvignon. The other grapes blend in to add flavor and complexity. It has a fine, lifted finish with great ageing potential. Pairs well with beef, pork, lamb, squab, quail and duck.

(made from the vineyard around the winery in Luján de Cuyo): Bright dark ruby. Inviting scents of blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate. At once creamy, juicy and precise, conveying lovely floral lift and precision to its dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. This rather delicate wine boasts excellent lift in the mouth. Finishes with nicely buffered, ripe tannins and slowly rising length. Should make a very elegant dinner-table wine. Balbo shortened this wine's time in 100% new oak from 15 to 12 months in 2016. (Incidentally, she sold much of her 2015 Brioso red to Chile's national airline, LAN.)
