Winemaker's Notes

Harvested from ancient vines on the slopes of the Andes Mountains, comes Terra Rosa Malbec: a glass-staining wine with a lovely and exotically perfumed nose. Patrick Campbell, owner/winemaker, heads down to Argentina five times per year to oversee vineyard management and to control harvest and fermentation activities. After the fermentations are finished, the wine is brought up to our California winery (Laurel Glen) by ship in temperature-controlled 24,000 liter stainless steel containers to age in French and European oak barrels for 15 months.

These conditions resulted in full ripening at higher than normal sugars, while still maintaining balance and finesse.
