Notes of rich dark fruit, marionberry and currant are the main players aromatically. More brooding than many fruit forward Malbecs, flavors of toffee converge with plenty of structure on the palate.

Winemaker Notes
Our Estate Malbec showcases the uniqueness of both our vineyard and cellar. Notes of rich dark fruit, marionberry and currant are the main players aromatically. More brooding than many fruit forward Malbecs, flavors of toffee converge with plenty of structure on the palate. This wine is drinking well now, and is a good candidate to age over the next few years.

Production Notes
Making up just ¾ of an acre on our estate vineyards, our Estate Malbec yields bright and delicate fruit. This small but mighty block is trellised (as opposed to head trained) and among the last to be picked on our estate. After harvest, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and then racked to French oak barrels. After aging for 22 months in barrel (40% new), the wine was bottled in August 2017.
Vineyard Notes
2015 was another warm year with one of our earliest harvests to date. Yields were lower than the past few growing seasons, but the quality of fruit was exceptional with concentrated flavors and balanced acidity due to consistently warm temperatures throughout the season. The grapes for our 2015 Estate Malbec were harvested on October 9, 2015.
