2014 Malbec Reserve

Red Blend

Vineyard and Winemaking

Our 2014 Sonoma County Malbec comes from a small vineyard near the town of Sonoma. Much like other classic Malbec wines, the Hans Fahden 2014 Malbec is similar to Merlot with less acidity and more juicy upfront fruit. Bottled a very limited 45 cases.

Tasting Notes

Opens with aromas of spiced cake, dark chocolate, cherry cordial, along with blackberry and mocha. The bright palate opens with fruit forward notes of blackberry and boysenberry, leading to flavors of chai tea, caramel mocha, dried blackberry and cola spice with a long, lingering finish. Tasting superb now, our 2014 Malbec will offer rewards with patience as it ages gracefully.
