Malbec in California stands out as something a little unusual and unique. You know, like the one outed gay guy at the Republican convention in Mississippi, it’s not easily missed. At first glance all you see is something deep, dark, heavy and brooding. But then you take a sip and you realize it’s not really any of those things. It's actually defined by minerals, pretty lifted fruit and surprisingly silky tannins. This vintage has raspberry, dark plum, cranberry and cola. Satisfying and rare.
