Avatar Cabernet Sauvignon
Casir dos Santos
Argentina - Mendoza    - Lujan de Cuyo

The youngest line from Casir dos Santos, Avatar is the embodiment of the Agrelo´s terroir in a wine. Striking, audacious, joyful, profound. A spontaneous and pleasurable experience for the senses. 

Presents a vibrant red color with glints of bordeaux. Great aromatic intensity. The spiciness of the nose is echoed on the palate and combines well with juicy red fruit flavors. It expresses in a very fresh way, with red fruits, sweet tannins and balanced acidity.
