El Tango – Argentina Red Blend (Malbec/Bonarda/Syrah)

Delight in the deep crimson bloom of El Tango’s performance; an intensity and aroma matched only by the rich, fragrant beauty of the red rose –¡Olé!

The dry, medium-body boasts intense aromas of red currants, black raspberries, hints of oak, and pepper spice, with rounded tannins and a toasted vanilla finish.

Try it with grilled flank steak and traditional Asado chimichurri sauce, Argentinian beef empanadas, and roasted or grilled vegetables.

La Cueca is sure to disarm and charm the senses in the most delightful way –¡Olé!
