    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Rich and fleshy, with smooth blackberry and boysenberry fruit flavors augmented by sweet mocha, spice and toast notes. Long, suave finish. Offers plenty of fruit without getting jammy or heady. Drink now through 2006."
    -Wine Spectator

    The fruit for Gascon Malbec is grown in a vineyard over 50 years old in Agrelo, in the high-altitude wine country of Mendoza, Argentina. It is made from 100% free run juice. It receives a 21 day maceration, as well as a full Malolactic fermentation. Then wine is then aged in 30% new French oak barrels and 70% 2-3 year-old French oak barrels.

    Of an intense color with dark red tones, Gascon Malbec has a concentrated nose of ripe black cherry fruit with notes of vanilla and chocolate. Medium-bodied, it has rich fruit flavor and a soft, velvety finish.

    Review: 89 points - Wine & Spirits Magazine: "Young and rambunctious, the licorice plum flavors bolstered by a bit of tannin and lively acidity, all held together by a thick ribbon of chocolate."
