2018 Malbec, Deux Chevaux Vineyard
The aromatics of the Deux Chevaux Vineyard Malbec deliver beautiful floral tones of lilac and violet, along with fennel-cured coppa (capicola), wild blackberry, and applewood-smoked bacon. There are hints of huckleberry, black currant, smokey bacon, savory charcuterie, and a touch of white pepper and sage on the palate. The sensation of acidity in the mouthfeel leads to a refreshing finish with a nice persistence. Bright, with good energy, albeit a darker-profiled wine.
