2015 Napa Valley Malbec

This Malbec has a note of truffle, followed by black pepper and an exotic berry note of blueberry and strawberry jam. This wine is juicy with layers of fruit flavor and a richness on the palate. The grapes for this wine are sourced from two vineyards:Malbec from the Cunat vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley and Cabernet Franc from Tonella Estate Vineyard in Rutherford.

Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

Harvest 2015 was one of our earliest years on record. The persistent California drought and a cool spring during bloom led to low yields in the vineyard and an early bud break. Careful irrigation and canopy management were key and allowed our growers to maximize quality and create beautifully ripe and balanced fruit. The wines resulting from the 2015 vintage are some of our favorite to date.
