Malbec

Sonoma Valley

 

Winemaker’s Notes

Malbec is typically used to give depth of color to blends of Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. With the 2015 vintage we saw an opportunity to showcase the dense, dark flavors of Malbec from the Pickberry Vineyard on the north side of Sonoma Mountai. This bottling proudly showcases the inherent meaty richness of this noble grape variety. Deep purple, approaching black in color with a spicy nose, it exhibits nuances of chocolate, cedar and spice and boasts a rich range of dark fruit flavors. Serve with cheese, red meat or game and earthy mushroom dishes.
