Juicy & full bodied. Blackcurrant & blueberry, velvety tannins with delicious freshness.
Tasting Notes: Intense fruit aromas with aromatic violet. The palate is full bodied and deliciously juicy - blackcurrant & blueberry fruits with smooth, well integrated tannins. Grapes are sourced from the northern end of California's long central valley. Malbec here benefits from the cooling influence of San Francisco bay so grapes retain freshness. After fermentation 70% of the Malbec is aged on oak for 4 months giving good integration and subtle oak characteristics. A small percentage of Syrah is blended into the wine before bottling to give some extra structure to this plush red wine.
Food Match : Steak, beef casseroles, Chilli con Carne OR Veggie Chilli, charcuterie, hard mature cheeses.
