2019 Fidélitas Estate Malbec
This is the second ever 100% varietal Malbec out of the Fidélitas Estate. In general for our Malbecs we like to use less new oak in aging and more stainless steel for fermenting to push forward the fruity characteristics of the varietal. On Red Mountain, in the extremely warm growing conditions Malbecs tend to be more rich, full, and fruit-forward compared to their thinner and spicier South American counterparts. In the glass the wine is a dark purple almost black color with a bright magenta ring. On the aroma we get black berry, fig, and black cherry. The palate is extremely full and rich, with a classic dusty tannin and white pepper finish. Pair this wine with tacos and all sorts of BBQ—do as the Argentians do. Drink now or through 2035.
