Description

VITICULTURE
Grapes are sourced from the northern end of California’s long central valley. Malbec here benefits from the cooling influence of San Francisco bay so grapes retain freshness.
WINEMAKING
This wine is sourced from vineyards in the northern part of California’s Central Valley. The region around Lodi and Manteca enjoys significant influence from San Joaquin and Sacramento river deltas, which act as a natural cooling system to the often-searing heat. The effect is to provide freshness to the ripe, fruit charged Cabernet grapes.
OAK TREATMENT
Yes.
TASTING NOTE
Ripe blackcurrant and wild berry fruit on the nose complimented sweet vanilla oak. Rich cassis and black cherry fruit on the palate with a soft, juicy, yet long finish. Framed by the subtle American oak.
FOOD MATCHING
Almost any red meat, especially served rare, is going to do the trick.
