Winemaking Notes

Our 2018 Malbec is very rich and deeply colored, with intense aromas and flavors of black plum, blackberry, black-tea leaf, crushed violets and baking spices. This bold wine consists of soft tannins which lead to a nice finish with wonderful acidity. Pair this delicious rich wine with braised beef short ribs or a blue cheese and honey drizzled shortbread. Enjoy it over the next three to six years.

Production Notes
The 2018 growing season was dry throughout the spring with well below normal precipitation. Cooler weather dominated this vintage with only two short, relatively mild heat spikes through the entire growing season. Summer days were very pleasant in Sonoma County with highs in the 70's and 80's and with August having even warmer temperatures. With everything in balance, we harvested October 1-16.
