Delicate floral aromas grace the entry of this Malbec, followed by bright red stone fruit. Flavors of cherry, mulberry and plum develop in the mouth, joined by licorice, vanilla and baking spices. A subtle smokiness lingers across the finish. Well balanced with soft tannins and inviting easiness, this wine pairs nicely with oily, well-structured sauces such as creamy Alfredo or rich Carbonara. Roasted beef tenderloin is an excellent match to advance the rich fruit flavors and highlight the wine’s complexity.
The grapes for the Malbec were hand harvested in the morning when temperatures were cool and acids high. Cool fermentation in stainless steel further retained a bright fruit expression. To extract maximum aromas and colors, they used daily pump-over and delestage, followed by extended maceration for body and finesse. Approximately 30 percent of the wine was aged in French oak casks for 12 months. The wine was aged an additional 3 months in bottle for balance and roundness.
