2018 Heart of the Hill Malbec
Heart of the Hill Vineyard is a relatively new planting, owned by one of the first families on Red Mountain. The Williams family is now third generation Red Mountain grape growers and winemakers, and this vineyard in quite literally the heart of the hill has instantly become an iconic site. Heart of the Hill Malbec has been the base of our Red Mountain Malbec for several years now, but after being able to work with it a bit, we pulled out just six barrels to create a stand alone wine. The aromas on this wine are enticing, fruity, and complex. “It’s really quite distinctive,” says Charlie. “You can tell there is a bit of new oak there, but the aroma is really just so beautiful.” We find it to be more elegant than its multi-vineyard counterpart, where the spice isn’t as present, but with more concentration and a long, nice, smooth finish. Drink now through 2028.
