2014 Malbec

$65.00

This varietal embraces our 2000’ elevation terroir and stands out as exceptionally vibrant.  The aromas of the 2014 Malbec burst with pomegranate concentrate, blueberry, blackberry, violets, and a hint of chocolate on the finish; the mouthfeel is intense, juicy, balanced: distinctly Malbec.
