Single Vineyard Naoki's Malbec 2014
WINE OVERVIEW

This Single Vineyard wine comes from a newly discovered terroir - an untouched plateau rich with limestone that imparts a unique minerality to the usually fruity varietal.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, marked floral profile characteristics of this property, as well as the typical notes of the varietal: plums and fresh red fruit with floral notes and a subtle touch of spices from the local flora. Limestone outcroppings in the vineyard create a mineral texture and fresh mouthfeel with polished tannins. It is a complex and balanced wine with a long finish.

Food Pairing

Pair with slow-braised short ribs, bacon-wrapped dates, or spicy cheeses.
