Malbec 2011 Magnum
Site selection, meticulous vineyard management, vine maturity, and harvesting at optimal ripeness translate into fruit of uncommon density and complexity. Gentle winemaking with 20 months in French oak contributed to making this Malbec a noble wine of distinction. Briary blackberries, milk chocolate, cedar and hints of dried lavender meld with broad tannins and an earthy spice to create a balanced and structured wine. With cellaring this wine will improve for six to eight years. Pairings include blackened Ahi or bacon wrapped dates stuffed with blue cheese.
