California, a wildcard for Malbec? Not when the game is played in the sun-kissed vineyards of the Central Valley - the perfect growing environment.

How it's made

Grapes are sourced from the northern end of California's long central valley. Malbec here benefits from the cooling influence of San Francisco Bay so grapes retain freshness. After fermentation 70% of the Malbec is aged on oak for four months giving good integration and subtle oak characteristics.

Juicy and full bodied, with plenty of blackcurrant and blueberry fruit, velvety tannins and great freshness.
