Production Notes
The 2016 vintage represents the first time we’ve combined high elevation Malbec from Katie’s Vineyard on East Orchard Mesa (sweet tannins, rich concentrated mouthfeel, trace of cocoa) with Malbec from the lower elevation Cliffside Vineyard near the winery (round, ripe juicy red and dark fruit flavors). A small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon was blended in to add more structure and elegance. The wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 14 months and bottled in January 2018.
Winemaker Notes
Deep aromas of ripe raspberry and blueberry are joined by delicate violet floral notes, with a trace of mocha and cinnamon spice. This wine has wellintegrated tannins, bright acidity and a velvety concentrated structure. Matches well with grilled steaks, charcuterie, rich cheeses, burgers, and beef burritos.
