“Pale, bright straw. Highly pungent aromas of grapefruit pith, green tea, jasmine and succulent herbs. Dry, sharply focused citrus fruit and quince flavors show a refreshingly bitter edge and not a trace of excess fat. Linear, pure and vibrant, finishing with strong thrust and stony cut.” – 90 pts. Vinous

Tasting Special: $18.59 || Regularly: ​$23.25

2013 Renacer Enamore (Mendoza, Argentina)
Supple aromas of ripe berries, raisin, and plums. Sensual notes of exotic spices, charcoal and chocolate are seamlessly layered with the fruit. Full bodied, rich and complex, with a long finish beautifully framed by fine-grained tannins.
