Winemaker

"Loved by our growers for its hardy nature and adored by our cellar team for its deep, vibrant expression; Malbec has become a coveted grape for the Snake River Valley. This rugged vine yields a wine that is complex with exuberant notes of raspberry and allspice, silky tannins, and a rich finish. My winemaker's secret: years from now you'll be so grateful you saved a case or two!"

Tasting notes

Our Malbec greets you with aromas of white tea and apricot on the nose.  Then the flavors unfurl into black raspberry and mango with a touch of chai followed by a long finish and intense body. Wow!

Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 4 punch-downs per day. Grapes are pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. 16 months of barrel aging in 11% new barrels, 34% 2nd and 3rd use barrels, and 55% old barrels. Bottled in February 2020. 

Other notes

Pair with Santa Maria oak-wood grilled BBQ Tri-Tip or red wine braised venison stew.  Also pairs wonderfully with stuffed roasted peppers...or try it with your favorite Posole recipe.  

When to drink: During the first year, decant for an hour & then enjoy. While approachable early in its life, this wine will continue to evolve beautifully over the next 5-15 years.
