2016 Malbec

$85.00

For the 2016 harvest, we had an almost perfect spring, the growing conditions during the summer had minor extremes and the ripening period was almost as ideal. September had a brief late heat spike and a touch of rain fell in October, rounding out a great season. Our Malbec from our estate vineyard on Mt. Veeder shows notes of boysenberry, and sweet rhubarb followed by a hint of cedar with great acidity and lush mountain tannins.
