2016 Reserve Malbec

Reserve

Winemaking Notes

Our 2016 Reserve Malbec is rich with aromas of briary berry fruit, boysenberry and light floral undertones. On the palate, black cherry and currants give way to dried herbs and fine tannins for a lingering finish.

Food pairings

Enjoy this wine now with honey glazed pork chops, oven roasted winter vegetables or a petit filet with spicy peppercorn sauce.

History

Our 2016 Reserve Malbec was made in our small lot Artisan Cellar. Winemakers Greg Morthole and Justin Seidenfeld employ techniques such as gentle destemming, whole berry fermentation, barrel fermentatations and thermo maceration, using small tanks and equipment sized for the most discriminating vineyard selection process. Our cellar is state of the art and represents the Klein family's commitment to producing the finest wines possible.

The Vineyards

Early winter showers with a fair amount of rainfall were followed by a warm, dry spring in 2016. Alternating overcast days and heat waves continued through spring and summer, with a warm July and August. We harvested Malbec starting September 21st and ending October 10th.
