Sensual and luscious floral notes of fresh violets delight the nose in this beautiful 2018 Estate Reserve Malbec. Deeply vibrant purple in color, this wine tastes of warm end of the summer berries, currant, and rich dark plum, finished with a velvety smooth and mild structure of tannin.
After de-stemming the Malbec grapes are lightly crushed into stainless steel vats. When the fermentation starts the wine undergoes methodical aeration at moderate temperatures to extract soft tannin and color. Finally when mouth-feel objectives are reached, the grapes are gently pressed and barreled down. 100% barrel aged with 33% new oak and comprised of 22% French oak 11% American oak.

This sophisticated and uncomplicated Malbec will pair beautifully with a variety of dishes. Try it with a mixed plate of aged gouda, bacon jam, and crostini, or with a hearty meal of Korean short ribs, balsamic glazed meatloaf, or a dark chocolate flourless torte with warm berry compote.
