Tasting Notes

Deep vibrant purple/black color. Aromas of violets, wood-spice, orange zest, sweet fennel, vanilla, and black cherry fruit. The wine has good weight on the palate, with ripe plum and fresh loganberry flavors. There's a sweet fruit finish with good length, chewy tannins and light-roast complexity. This Malbec has good acidity, which brings a juiciness that pairs well with cured meats and specialty cheeses, as well as simply prepared steak.

The Vintage

In spite ongoing drought conditions throughout California, the weather for the 2014 vintage was very good for wine grapes, and provided an abundant and high-quality crop. Good fortune years like this are a blessing, and the wines show good depth of character.
