2016 Napa Valley Malbec
This 100% Malbec has inviting aromas of blueberry pie, peach, and orange rind on the nose. The bright fruit flavors of blueberry and ripe strawberry are well balanced with the heavy weight and texture of the palate. The tannins are velvety and plush, while the finish is accented with flavors of toasty, French oak and cocoa. Drink now or cellar through 2030.
