“Our 2020 Malbec spent 20 months in our hybrid barrels. These barrels are composed of French oak staves and American oak heads. The combination brings out beautiful flavor profiles while allowing the body and tannin structure to age gracefully. This wine is rugged and jammy in flavor. You may taste black currant, pomegranate reduction, and a hint of leather.” - Leo Gabica, Winemaker

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Sourced from our longtime friends and partners, Serra Vineyards of the Applegate Valley AVA in Southern Oregon.
Production Notes
Our estate experienced early season swings between heat and cool/ wet conditions leading up to flowering, resulting in smaller berries and clusters. Despite this, smaller clusters gave way to great color, and concentrated flavors with desired sugar levels.
Winemaker Notes
Cold-soaked for two days before fermentation. Aged in 27% French and 73% French/American Hybrid oak barrels for 20 months. Oak barrels were 36% 2nd/3rd used and 64% neutral.
