Product Description

The Lodi appellation is an ideal growing region for this varietal and is very similar with that of the MalbecsÂ’ most popular growing area, the high and dry Mendoza region of Argentina. Here in Lodi, long warm days are moderated by cool temperatures sliding down the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range during the evenings. The fruit was patiently selected and hand-picked into small bins to maintain health and quality. The 2017 Malbec was lightly crushed into tank for fermentation on its skins to dryness. It was then pressed and settled before being moved and aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels, of which 15% was new oak. The color of this wine is a vibrant deep purple/garnet. The aromas fill your senses with black raspberries, plums and floral violets. On the palate, your mouth will explode with seductive forward flavors of black cherries, plums and pepper. Light spice, cassis and toast lead to a soft lingering experience. The finish leads to a rich, round and soft mouth feel with moderate tannins.
