    Winemaker's Notes:

    A beautiful, deep, vibrant rosé color. Has a surprising amount of glycerin and body for a rosé wine, and beautiful aromas of fresh, ripe wild strawberries. On the palate, the flavors of strawberries and cherries come rushing in, accompanied by some spice notes and a clean, dry finish. This is the wine to serve with warm-weather meals when there is a mix of traditional white & red wine foods. Keep one in the fridge at all times and you'll always have a delicious wine to enjoy with light snacks and cheeses. Best consumed in its youth.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Rose of Malbec is a saignee of Malbec sourced from 30-year-old ungrafted vines. It exhibits a fragrant bouquet of cherry and wild strawberries leading to a medium-bodied, dry, concentrated wine with lots of spicy red fruits and excellent balance. Drink it over the next 12-18 months.

    Rablogan (9/24/2010)
    Derived from the Malbec grape, theis wine presnts a vibrant rose red color. As you remove the cork, aromatic gentle wild strawberry aroma fills the nose with no other hint of what is to come. As you pour, this aroma floats smoothly and invitingly under the nose. Upon tasting, the aroma of wild strawberry clearly gives way to the flavor of cherry that lingers on the palate and combines with a very slight spice. Wild strawberry flavors then pervade the cherry and spice to end with a notedly strong clean, dry finish. The finish is nothing short of stunning.
