2015 Malbec, Sonoma Valley
Crafted exclusively for our Tasting Room and Wine Club members, this Malbec is a distinctive, full flavored red delight. The 2015 Malbec opens with compelling aromas of Rainier Cherry, white pepper, clove and a touch of vanilla. Its beautiful dark purple color and rich tannin structure showcases flavors of ripe raspberry and white chocolate with a toasty nutmeg finish.
“I really enjoy Malbec due to its versatility in pairing with a variety of foods. I find Malbec to have layers of fruit flavors like one might find in Zinfandel and balanced by some of the texture and tannin one might expect from a Cabernet Sauvignon. When attending dinner at a friend’s house without knowing the menu, a Malbec makes the perfect gift. This wine has international appeal and the ability to pair with a broad range of cuisines.” -Zach Long, Winemaker
