2016 Malbec

Located east of Napa, our Mt. George Vineyard is the site of one of the first grape plantings in the valley in the 19th century. The deep soils derived from volcanic shale and tufa yield Malbec with intense dark fruit aromas and juicy, plush wine. The wine finishes with classic broad and rustic tannins.
