Vintage 2014
Wine Type Red
Varietal Malbec
Region Calistoga
Winemaker Trevor Durling

Our Malbec exhibits the deep, inky color and intense, dark-berry notes from the exceptional, dry-farmed, Peppone Vineyard in Calistoga. Layers of black raspberry, brambly boysenberry and black cherry cordial expression are laced with hints of spice, graphite and toasted almond. Our winemaker says the melding of the wine’s fruit-focused character with the vanilla-oak spice of barrel aging reminds him of the aromas of warm raspberry strudel. Our Malbec’s flavors are juicy and plush, with fine tannins that carry the dark-fruit flavors through the persistent finish.
