Ripe, red fruit and dirt literally make you want to crawl inside the glass. The fruit starts to pop a bit more on the palate - with spice and subtle oak bringing something fun to the party. Soft tannins help to round out the finish and leave you wanting one more sip.
Though a fair bit of it is grown around here, you just don't see many Malbecs from Lodi. Different from what they can do further south (if you're not a fan of what's coming out of Argentina...get with it already), this Malbec is made for grilled red meat. The wine was aged for nearly 20-months in French and American oak barrels. The final alcohol content is 14.3% by volume and a total of 93 cases were produced.
