Gene (Bordeaux Blend)
This wine is a blend of 50% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Merlot, grown at an altitude of 4,600 feet in stony, calcareous soils. The vines were planted in 2007. Vinified in concrete tanks; 30% of the blend is aged in used oak. The soft tannin and fleshy, velvet mid palate integrates with a mineral driven finish of crushed wet rock, typical of Gualtallary. 1,000 cases produced.
