E Cellars Cuvée Red Wine 2015, Bennett Valley, Sonoma County, California

2015 vintage – 58% Malbec, 41% Merlot, 1% Syrah. Aged for 16 months in a combination of French and American barrels, this wine is aromatically bold and smooth on the palate. With its unique terrain, mild climate and winding country roads, Bennett Valley is an incredibly beautiful place that is also a superb place to grow wine grapes. Early morning fog, cool marine breezes and its mountain bench location create ideal growing conditions for several great varieties. The delicate complexity of this wine is a reflection of the very special place.
