2009 Malbec, Solana Vineyard

from 93.50

You can be proud of your swag if you’ve got this beauty in your collection, this Paso delight follows tradition, (my tradition) gentle and nuanced with sexy thick, dark, briery tones that make your mouth water.  Drenched with flavors of raspberry mocha that continually evolve in your glass.  I am salivating as I write this.  Great food wine to try with lamb chops or a zesty pasta dish.  Get your swag on.

Malbec, one of the 'lost' Bordeaux's, that regained popularity when the great country of Argentina decided to embrace it's glory.  Filled with layers of character, and myself being of Argentinian decent, I couldn't pass up the chance to give this a grape a go.  I wanted to produce a Central Coast Malbec that is both food friendly, yet voluptuous.  Sticking to my early pick standard, I gained the balance of acidity I desired and with extended aging in the barrel the dark fruit flavors came through.  To my Argentinian ancestors - Salude!
