2013 continues the streak of powerful, Malbecs that I feel very lucky to be a part of bringing peoples dinner table. (or lunch table, or simply just to sip on and enjoy, you can even have it for breakfast, I won’t tell) The inky dark color lets you know right of the bat that you’re in for a treat. Sweet, hearty fruit aromas commence with hints of Maron Glace’ (a candied chestnut found in Piemonte Italy) huckleberry preserves, and boysenberry jam fill the fruit notes on the nose. Black tea and pencil shavings lead the earthy notes on the nose to a final aroma of a fresh unlit cigar. The palate is as rich, bold and full bodied as the nose implies with nice acidity and lush tannins. Jammy fruit flavors kick of the happy assault on your taste buds. The finish is a perfect complement of fruit, spice, and earth with a wonderful texture that lingers forever.  Bring on the bacon for this one! A perfectly grilled steak topped with bacon jam and a bit of sweet Gorgonzola would be an amazing pairing with this wine. 266 cases produced
