This blend is sourced from four vineyards including our Estate Vineyard in Stonewall, TX. We also used Malbec from our vineyards in Mason County as well as two vineyards from the High Plains. The 2015 vintage was a perfect growing year here in Texas and resulted in a concentrated, deep purple-hued Malbec. Post-fermentation, we allow the wine to sit on skins post fermentation until the “cap” or skins sank on their own. This technique is used to naturally clarify the wine and allows for a much richer fuller wine. All of the wine blended in this final Malbec was barrel aged for 16 months. The blend of new and old oak allows for a mellowing of tannins to form a full bodied wine.  The best characteristic of Malbec is the smooth tannins and rich deep flavors of stonefruits and earthiness, making this wine a perfect pairing for any gathering. 

Aromatics: Bright red fruit and spice with hints of coffee, leather and rose


On the Palate: Brown spice, clove and dark chocolate with bold tannins
