This wine presents deep, vibrant, dark purple and red hues. Aromas of black plum and raspberry with a light hand of graphite, black licorice, and cigar. Flavors of youthful juicy boysenberry and black cherry entering with a hint of anise and toasty oak. This is a terrific Malbec. Enjoy!
The fruit was hand harvested in the cool morning hours and brought to the winery in half ton bins. At the winery, the clusters were sorted using a double sorting system. First, the clusters were sorted by hand. The fruit then ran through a small destemmer that removed stems
from the grapes prior to the individual berries being sorted to ensure that the most ideal grapes were chosen. These berries were delivered to a fermenter where there was a period of resting on skins. Warm fermentation temperatures were encouraged along with gentle cap maceration to achieve the desired color and structure for the wine before an extended maceration time on skins prior to final pressing. The wine was transferred directly to barrel for 19 months of maturation.
