Aromas of black cherry, violet, tobacco and sweet vanilla. Dark and bold, with concentrated flavors of ripe plum, blackberry, espresso and cracked pepper. Dense tannins and a silky texture round out the palate.

Winemaker Notes
The 2016 growing season began with an earlier than average bud break and fruit set followed by moderate temperatures in spring and summer. This allowed for even ripening, and balanced flavors. Our 2016 Malbec is a deep garnet color with expressive aromas of black cherry, violet, tobacco and sweet vanilla. This wine is dark and bold, with concentrated flavors of ripe plum, blackberry, espresso and cracked pepper. Dense tannins and a silky texture round out the palate with a subtle gamey character on the finish. This wine will age wonderfully over the next 6-8 years.
