Winemaker Notes

New Release
 
Uber ripe, blackberry jam, cassis, briary notes make you forget to even take a sip. Once you do, the flavors explode. The dense fruit, rich and viscous body enliven the palate. Forest floor and sun ripened blackberries with hints of mulberry round out this amazing wine. True to Malbec the color is inky dark, reveling in the shadows this wine comes alive with air.
