The Vintage

Record-breaking winter rains filled our reservoirs and recharged the soil. Spring and early summer were warm, leading to very strong growth in the vines. The rest of the summer was more typical with warm days and cool nights, providing perfect conditions for the developing grapes. Our yields for the season were slightly lower than average and the resulting wines are classic—with complex flavors and our signature brightness on the palate.

The Wine

Wonderfully ripe and boisterous, this wine presents aromas of blueberries, boysenberries, tobacco leaf and dark chocolate. Rich undertones of toasted oak and caramel support the elegant palate.

Food Affinities

Chef Chris Kennedy creates delicious Malbec pairings with mushrooms, prepared in every way. Enjoy this wine with lean cuts of red meat and a mixed grill of portobello mushrooms, red peppers, and fennel dressed with an aged balsamic vinegar to take your palate to new heights.
