With varied harvest dates starting in late September to early November, we are excited about the complexity of the flavors in this vintage of Malbec. 90% of fermentation was completed in upright stainless steel tanks, while 10% of fermentation was completed in the pump-under method. PDM yeast was used on all components. 100% malolatic fermentation completed in neutral 59-gallon French Oak barrels. The wine was then aged for 16 months in 5% new French oak, 25% 2-year old French oak, 30% 3- year old French oak, and 40% in neutral French oak barrels.

Hints of bright, ripe blueberry, plum, mint, and savory herbs on the nose. Followed by rich, dark layers of plum, black cherry, smoke, sage, and minerals on the palate. Medium bodied, with refined, lingering tannins.
