2021 Malbec Vineyards Spotlight

We procured our 2021 Malbec from three vineyards, two of which are situated at elevations exceeding 1000 feet: Stagecoach Vineyards and Terra Del Cuore. Stagecoach Vineyards, reaching its pinnacle near 1700 feet, boasts deep red volcanic soil with a sandy texture, ensuring excellent drainage and resulting in an intensely concentrated wine. Conversely, our Terra Del Cuore vineyard showcases terraced vines facing south, maximizing sun exposure. These terraces are meticulously designed to optimize drainage and regulate vine vigor, culminating in a wine of exceptional ripeness and concentration. The third and newest vineyard source is Patland's Oaknoll Vineyard planted in 2019. This vineyard shares its borders and soil with the renowned Oaknoll District praised for its gravelly alluvial loam soil, and deep rooting potential. Thanks to these features we're able to produce wines that achieve optimal ripeness with very well-preserved acid levels. By blending only the finest barrels from each of these sites, we craft a wine that exemplifies the best qualities of each vineyard. Due to the dry, & warm growing season, we were able to achieve phenomenal wine quality but at the expense of bottles produced. With only 90 cases produced, and 20 cases going to the library this wine won't be available for long.
