Now it’s not just about pretty labels, but this one is a looker! Plush, blueberry fruited & violet scented Malbec from an unexpected region in California’s central valley. What’s not to like?
Grapes are sourced from the northern end of California's long central valley. Malbec here benefits from the cooling influence of San Francisco bay so grapes retain freshness. After fermentation 70% of the Malbec is aged on oak for 4 months giving good integration and subtle oak characteristics. A small percentage of Syrah is blended into the wine before bottling to give some extra structure to this plush red wine.
