Winemaker Notes

Made from 100% Malbec. The wine is fermented in French oak barrels for two years, with an additional year in bottle prior to release.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The fruit for the 2006 Cadus Malbec was sourced from Lujan de Cuyo and Alto Agrelo with the wine spending 24 months in new French oak. It offers up a classy nose of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, lavender, espresso, and black cherry. On the palate it is elegant with some underlying structure, excellent volume, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will be at its best from 2013 to 2021.

A rugged and topographically diverse cool-climate appellation with a rich history, the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA stretches from Half Moon Bay to just above Monterey county. Elevation ranges from just 800 feet to upwards of 3000, and microclimates vary substantially depending on which side of the mountains the vineyards lay. Cool ocean winds and fog play an important role as well. This can be a challenging region in which to grow grapes, but it is well worth the effort. Wine has been made here since the 1800s, most notably from the legendary Ridge Vineyards, whose Monte Bello vineyard garners international admiration.

[Pinot Noir], Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon are the stars of this region, and Merlot and Zinfandel also perform quite well. Santa Cruz Mountains wines are noted for their distinct minerality and balanced acidity. Often these wines can be aged for many years. Organic and sustainable vineyard practices are becoming increasingly common.
