2015 Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec

 

"This wine represents a history of Idaho vineyards in a glass. The Cabernet Sauvignon is from vienyards planted in the 1970's in the first wave of post-prohibition planting in Idaho.  The 95% survival rate of these vines show the longevity potential of the vineyards here.  The Merlot came in a second wave of plantings in the 90's and the Malbec is the bright newcomer to the scene.  I love the intensity of fruit aromas and flavors of this blend, with nuances that keep unfolding long after you've swallowed."

                                                                  - Melanie Krause, Winemaker

Tasting notes

Warm sandalwood and cocoa aromas are followed by dark cherry notes mixed with cinnamon and clove.  The finish is rich and long. 

Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 4 punch-downs per day. 10% of batches native yeast fermentation. Bladder pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation in barrel. 21 months of barrel aging in barrels of French, Hungarian and American origin, 30% new oak. Bottled unfiltered in June 2017. 

Other notes

Let's try this with your favorit pork dish and make sure there's a fruit composte on board for the ride - or you could open a bottle with some baked brie or port truffles. Whatever you choose, enjoy the layers of flavor. 

When to Drink 

During the first year, decant for an hour and then enjoy.  While fresh and ripe early in its life, this wine will continue to evolve beautifully over the next 5-25 years.
