2003 Malbec Los Carneros, Napa Valley

Dark and inky in color, with aroma of ripe plum, strawberry, blueberry and lavender, the 2003 Malbec is long and full on the palate. The almost creamy texture is followed by soft tannins that coat the mouth. The gentle vanillin from the oak pairs with the fruit of the wine and gives a spice interest to the wine's overall character. 

Food pairing suggestions: Salmon steak, robust pasta, roast beef, lamb chops, barbequed chicken, chocolate over ice cream, blackberry pie.
