This delicious Merlot was macerated during 17 days and then, aged in new French and American oak barrels for 12 months.
Appearance: Bright ruby red in colour. Fine drops that glide slowly down the glass.
Nose: Initially there are subtle aromas of blackberries, ripe red plums and lavender. After swirling the glass, intense aromas of baked red berries are released as well as cherry compote and white pe–pper. Subtle hints of aromatic herbs, lavender and sage.
Mouth: A suggestive taste of ripe wild blackberries, and blueberries. A broad, lasting sensation on the palate. Balanced structure, good acidity boosting the sensation of freshness. Reminiscent of li–quorice, freshly ground coffee and baked sugar. Mature, pleasant tannin.
Serving: Serve between 16ºC and 18ºC in medium-sized wineglasses with a wide body. Ideal for griddled beef dishes, roast lamb and also with duck magret and red berry reduction. Wonderful with tradi–tional roast meat and vegetable dishes.
Note: The name of this wine, Argila, is a synonym of “Arcilla” (argilla in Latin, clay in English), and refers to the soil where our Merlot vineyard is, mainly consisting of clayey soil, producing the spe–cial characteristics of this wine.
