Vineyard Notes
2013 proved to be an excellent year in Napa Valley. It was slightly warmer than 2012, resulting in an overall earlier growing season. Lower than normal rainfall paired with moderate spring weather brought early bud break and bloom. Sunny skies throughout the summer months led to early veraison and harvest. Warm daytime temperatures followed by cool nights produced evenly ripened fruit with ideal hang time.
Production Notes
Rolando loves Malbec due to its “extreme” personality. This wine is aged in 85% new French oak for 20 months, at which point he feels the fruit, tannins, and oak are in perfect harmony.
Tasting Notes
Dark purple in color, this Malbec has aromas of dark cherry, blueberry, licorice, cinnamon, and black pepper. A rich, concentrated mouthfeel is highlighted by dark fruits, red currant, and chocolate, with traces of cassis and violet. This wine has rich tannins, medium acidity, a silky texture, and a long, well-balanced finish.
Food Pairing Notes
This spicy and deeply complex wine deserves your best dishes. Start toasting spices and make a true Oaxacan mole or get those ribs marinating in spices and brown sugar - you will thank us later.
