2015 Malbec Reserve


Vineyard and Winemaking

Our 2015 Malbec comes from the ‘Running Rabbit Ranch’ in the Sonoma Valley near the entrance to the Valley of the Moon. From bud break throughout the harvest the year’s growing conditions were perfect, dry, and warm. Hand harvested on September 28, 2015. The wine was carefully racked twice before we moved it out of barrels to bottle – unfined and unfiltered, after 3 years in barrel. Bottled a very limited 95 cases.

Tasting Notes

Alluring aromas of cassis, roasted strawberry compote, along with hints of cherry cola, cream brûlée, buttered toast, and vanilla. The soft palate unfolds with mouth filling soft tannins, followed by notes of blackberry jam and dried fig with hints of vanilla, black pepper, allspice, and cedar spice. Full bodied and approachable now, our 2015 Malbec will age gracefully over the next 5 to 10 years.
