Winemaker Notes

Deep garnet colored, the nose reveals enticing blueberry, sandalwood, and cedar notes. The palate is layered and savory, with approachable soft tannins and great length. This is an incredibly versatile wine at the table. Pair it with grilled flank steak in summer, a classic turkey at Thanksgiving, or a hearty roast in winter.

Wine Enthusiast
Deep and generous black-cherry flavors are wrapped in silky tannins in this nicely concentrated and polished wine. It boasts a soothing mouthfeel, with touches of clove and cardamom that add to its appeal.

The 2018 Malbec Skid Row is relatively open knit and ready to go, with a savory style in its red and black fruits, dried herbs, and peppery aromas and flavors. As with all the wines here, it’s balanced and impeccably made.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Saracina Skid Road Malbec is firmly packed and beautifully balanced. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of ripe berries, licorice, and forest floor. Pair it with grilled short ribs. (Tasted: December 18, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Saracina Vineyards Saracina Vineyards - Mendocino County Winery Image

Saracina Vineyards is a 400-acre winery estate located in Mendocino County. The winery and vineyards are Certified California Sustainable (“CSWA”) and home to a tasting room, a 140-year-old olive grove, vegetable gardens, beehives, alpacas, and all manner of bird and wild animal life.

Saracina’s location in Hopland is close to the southern border of Mendocino County, along the head waters of the Russian River. This area is a 90-minute drive north of San Francisco, and 30 miles north of the town of Healdsburg, in northern Sonoma County.

Winemaker Alex MacGregor joined John Fetzer, the original founder of Saracina Vineyards, in 2002, and has been making Saracina’s wines ever since. As a result of Alex’s commitment to quality, strong ties to the community, and long-standing grower relationships, Saracina Vineyards has been regarded as one of the most consistent wine producers in Mendocino County. And in 2018, Marc D. Taub took on stewardship of the Saracina Estate & Vineyards, upholding the spirit of family legacy that has defined this iconic Mendocino winery since inception.

The handcrafted, limited-production Saracina Vineyards wines reflect a conscious sense of this beautiful place in Mendocino County.

A large and diverse appellation within California’s North Coast AVA, Mendocino is home to several smaller sub-regions—most notably the Anderson Valley. This scenic region, with rolling hills covered in redwood forests as well as vineyards, is one of the world’s top producers of certified organically-grown grapes. Due to wide geographical and climatic variation, a vast array of wine styles can be found here.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
