2013 Merryvale Malbec
Deep purple in color with notes of Blackberry, plum, and caramel on the nose. This is a mouth coating and brooding wine with flavors of cherry, dried sage and hints of smoke, followed by a long smooth acidity. With proper cellaring, it will drink beautifully for up to 15 years.
Sourced from a high elevation mountain vineyard, the fruit intended for the Merryvale Malbec was handpicked and double sorted before going under cold soak. This wine is a blend of two grape lots, both were fermented with native yeasts. The wine was aged for 22 months in 50% new French oak barrels.
