Soft tannins, supple black fruits with hints of violets and vanilla. This is the first malbec from California to hit the shelves in Ontario. The grapes were sourced from various California appellations and blended with a small percentage of cabernet sauvignon and petite sirah. This is a juicy fruit-driven, easy-going red. Tasted September 2012.

This wine is all about the fruit. Ripe red fruits, jammy strawberry and meaty aromas with nice aroma replays. Hints of oak on the medium-length and slightly hot finish. Tannins are nicely integrated, could be cellared another 1-2 years. Tasted August/2013.
