Vilafonte 'M' is more Merlot based; still a blend, but using the Merlot, and Malbec with Cabernet to give it some backbone. Vilafonte 'M' is more supple, more "fruit forward"; with silky texture in the mouth, good length, and very approachable and succulent.
Dark blackberry fruit with fleshy, round tannins. The Merlot adds texture while the Cabernet Sauvignon tannins give intensity and structure, Cabernet Franc adds nuanced aromatics and helps polish the wine. Rich on the palate with flavours of cocoa powder, floral notes and black cherry.
