2013 Reserve Malbec

The 2013 vintage was long and sunny; an ideal season, but drought conditions remained. The dry spring brought concern, but two rainstorms in September alleviated any worry. The Indian summer allowed for long hang times and balanced fruit flavors with great concentration and a healthy crop.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of cherry, dried cranberry and caramel notes tantalize your senses. The palate is a powerful combination of Boysenberry, Marion berry, black pepper and milk chocolate, with a lingering fruit and lightly toasted oak finish.
