Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A dazzling purple in the glass, this Malbec displays aromas of blueberry and chocolate with hints of white pepper and vanilla. A silky mouthfeel introduces refreshing blackberry and blueberry flavors with hints of sweet sage, leading to a lingering, balanced finish.
Vineyard Notes
Abundant winter rainfall provided full soil profiles to start the growing season. A uniform and short bloom period coupled with cool growing temperatures through the early part of the season ensured even development with little variation throughout the vineyard blocks. Early summer temperatures were cooler than normal, while the end of summer brought temperatures with consistently warmer daytime and evening temperatures. All these factors culminated in full phenolic ripening, resulting in wines that have beautiful, deep color, balanced tannic structure, and round mouthfeel with soft acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
Braised leg of lamb and baked red potatoes.
