Winemaker's Notes

Incredible color—could use in an inkwell. Loads of spicy red berry and black cherry fruit flavors and aromas. Beautifully density and structure with lots of fine tannins and incredible length. Will age well, but could be hard to keep your hands off of. Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.

Expert Reviews
  • Wine Advocate
    (From 2009 Vintage) "The 2009 Malbec spent 16 months in 60% new French oak. It displays a fragrant perfume of lavender, wood smoke, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry leading to a smooth-textured, succulent, easygoing Malbec with a bit of hidden structure and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Although it is likely to evolve for 1-2 years, it can be approached now and over the next 10 years."
