Produced from 100% Malbec grown in Paso Robles, a region in California's Central Coast known for its warm days and cool evenings.
An opulent, fruit-forward example of Malbec, brimming with currant, black cherry, pomegranate and blueberry aromas and flavors typical of the variety. Those elements are balanced by a backdrop of tobacco, dark chocolate, wet-stone minerality and sweet spice notes.
Tart cherry leads on the palate, with with a supple tannic backbone and bright acidity that makes this Malbec perfect to enjoy now, and exceptional as a food pairing wine. The pairing secret of Malbec is that it works well with pepper, sage, creamy mushroom sauces, melted cheese, and in particular, blue cheese.
