Close your eyes, open a bottle of our 2002 Malbec, and find yourself on a lush and exotic retreat. From the blueberry, cinnamon and allspice, guava, plum and rose petal aroma to the rich, tropical taste with soft tannins, balanced acidity, and a long finish, this velvety wine will transport you!
Fermented in open top, half-ton fermenters for 7-10 days, our Malbec sat in extended maceration for 2-3 weeks. Regular tasting lets us find the richness we know this fruit will give!
