2019 Reserve Malbec James Vineyard

Tasting Notes

Aromas of jammy dark plum and chocolate-covered black raspberry. Dark fruit dances across a lively palate giving way to subtle warm oak notes. A tiny amount of Cabernet Franc is blended in to add some complexity and structure to the silky soft finish.

Food Pairings

Malbec pairs very well with a variety of meats and cheeses. This wine would go perfectly with your favorite grilled sausage, baba ghanoush, and beef tacos.
