"Aggie" Malbec

2017

100% Malbec from Capataz, a 52-acre vineyard planted in 2008 at 3,800 feet altitude in Gualtallary in the Uco Valley. The soils are calcareous, stony soils of alluvial origin; the vines are farmed sustainably.

The fruit is destemmed, then vinified with native yeasts over 40 days. Aged for 8 months, 40% in new French oak.

Notes of butterscotch, chocolate, and baked blueberry pie sprinkled with powdered sugar; a velvety mid-palate laced with hazelnuts round out this medium-bodied, mineral-driven Malbec.
