Winemaker's Notes

The fruit for Gascon Malbec is grown in a vineyard over 50 years old in Agrelo, in the high-altitude wine country of Mendoza, Argentina. It is made from 100% free run juice. It receives a 21 day maceration, as well as a full Malolactic fermentation. Then wine is then aged in 30% new French oak barrels and 70% 2-3 year-old French oak barrels. Tasting Notes: Of an intense color with dark red tones, Gascon Malbec has a concentrated nose of ripe black cherry fruit with notes of vanilla and chocolate. Medium-bodied, it has rich fruit flavor and a soft, velvety finish. Review: 89 points - Wine & Spirits Magazine: "Young and rambunctious, the licorice plum flavors bolstered by a bit of tannin and lively acidity, all held together by a thick ribbon of chocolate."
