A beautiful low-key light red that doesn't scream for attention but rather draws you in with its unassuming nature. Before you know it, you're enthralled by the subtle but bright flavors of earthy cherries and berries that dance on your tongue like nymphs swaying to "Smooth Operator".
Pairs well with Lengua Estofado or Salpicao.
