2019 The Canyons Vineyard Malbec
Our Canyons Vineyard Malbec, sourced entirely from one 1.25 acre block, is bottled on its own every other year or so in especially exceptional vintages. These Malbec vines sit (hold on for dear life) on one of the most extreme growing sites that we work with. The rows are planted on a 45 degree Southern-facing slope where they receive tons of heat and strong winds that constantly blow through the narrow canyon during the peak of the growing season when the day-night temperature swings are at their highest. This wine is already open and tasting great. Jumping out of the glass we get baking spices, vanilla bean, and cherry. The palate is rich but elegant, tons of dark fruit — plum, blueberry, and a classic white pepper Malbec finish. Drink now with a good 30+ minute decant or through 2025.
