A tasting room favorite!
Malbec has quickly become one of our favorites here, and for good reason! Perfect for BBQ and summer weather, this wine is great for the 4th of July and beyond. Malbec grapes really thrive on the hot summer days of our east side vineyards, and produce a flavor that creates a wine that is truely special and worth sharing with family and friends. Stock up today and don’t miss out!
Malbec is one of the six red varieties of Bordeaux wines, the most planted grape in Argentina, and widely used in Cahors, France for blending. Our Malbec is grown in our Hog Canyon and Stones Throw Estate Vineyards, within the Estrella District sub-AVA, where it does exceptionally well! We get color depth, a richness in the mid-palate, and a ton of fruit aromas and flavors. Enjoy it now but the wine will age superbly for five to ten years too.
Notes from our winemaker:
Malbec has its all- fruit flavors, herbal aromas, richness in the palate, and tannin structure on the finish. Care is taken during the fermentation to not over extract the Malbec. The wine is pumped over often to extract color without extracting too much of the bitter tannins. The Malbec is aged 12 months in French and American oak to add a layer of baking spice and mocha softness to the finish and frame the red berry fruit flavors.
