2013 Malbec

Tasting Notes
Our first-ever Malbec!  Aromas of ripe sugar plum an blueberry syrup are wrapped in a bed of wild iris, toasted tobacco, new leather and laced with vanilla bean and mocha scents.  Tightly woven acidity and dusty tannin provide a synergy and balance for the full and generous palate.  A finely oaked finish is supported with suggestions of black licorice, carob chip, molasses and sage flavors that smoothly fade into a lasting memory.  Enjoy now until 2023.  

Winemaking
The grapes were fermented into 5-ton open top fermenters and pumped over multiple times per day to achieve maximum extraction, which was necessary to match the ripe flavors of the vintage. Aged for 22 months in French oak.

Vineyard Notes

Vineyard Notes
The Cass Estate Vineyard, located southeast of the town of Paso Robles, exemplifies the quality of the Paso Robles region with its warm days, cool coastal breezes, and exceptional soils. Resting at 900 feet of elevation, the 160-acre vineyard is planted to 11 varieties on a large terrace above the Huer Huero River. Deposited over centuries, the diverse alluvial soils make for an expressive site that produces fruit of incredible quality.
