Vineyard Notes
2014 was the third consecutive great vintage in the Napa Valley with an abundant fruit harvest and excellent quality. A very dry and warm spring kicked off bud-break earlier than normal. Rainfall in Napa Valley was half of the normal volume we usually see, leading to early veraison and the earliest harvest Napa Valley had seen in 10 years. The dry conditions coupled with stressing clay soils in our Linda Vista vineyard where our Malbec is planted gave us slightly reduced yields of extra concentrated grapes of exceptional quality.
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.
