Wine Description

Malbec, a thin-skinned grape, thrives with the abundance of sun and warm, dry weather offered in some growing climates in California. Like France, California has traditionally used Malbec as a blending grape but opportunities to showcase this full-bodied varietal are increasing. Malbec is characterized by its deep purple color, smooth tannins, and ripe fruit flavors.

    (2009 Vintage) Slightly more interesting, the 2009 Malbec exhibits darker berries along with hints of earth, cocoa and spice box. Medium-bodied and riper than the Merlot, it is a blend of 76% Malbec, 8% Syrah and the rest Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It should be consumed over the next 2ndash;3 years.
