2014 Malbec, Sonoma Valley
A little bit of France, a touch of Argentina, and 100% Sonoma Valley, our 2014 Malbec is a wine not to miss. Crafted from Malbec grown just south of our downtown Sonoma tasting room, this wine represents the history that precedes it.
Known historically as “black wine” due to its dark color, Malbec thrives in the Cohors region of southwest France, where it has been produced since the Middle Ages. Today, Malbec is produced not only in France, but also in Argentina, which helped popularize this moody, mysterious wine in the United States.
Our award-winning Malbec is full-bodied with a deep, dark shade of inky purple. On the nose is the essence of sweet bing cherry, toasty oak, and cocoa. It’s an exotic wine, with rich flavors of sweet oak and blackberry. It lingers long, with a perfect touch of tannins that make it perfect for drinking now or aging for five more years.
