Though Malbec can offer beautiful concentration, with lush red fruit notes and silky tannins, there is very little of it planted in California— in part because it is notoriously challenging to grow, requiring a lot of care in the vineyard. Because we have our own fulltime vineyard team guided by longtime vineyard manager Dave Pirio, we are able to give our Malbec all the attention it deserves (and requires). We planted our Malbec well over a decade ago, primarily for use as a classic Bordeaux blending varietal in our Pritchard Hill® and Signature Cabernets. As these vines have evolved, they have become something special, offering a particularly intense and powerful expression of the grape, while still delivering Malbec’s trademark velvety tannins and juicy red fruit.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
This wine offers aromas of cassis and cherry, perfumed with tropical red-fruit nuances and French oak-inspired hints of vanilla, coffee and spice. The palate echoes the nose with almost liqueur-like layers of cassis and wild berry, as well as flavors of toasted oak, chocolate and roasted coffee. Velvety tannins underscore the rich, mouthfilling character of this lush and radiant wine.
Production
Wine Blend: 90% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot
