Vineyard and Winery
Grapes are sourced from California's northern Central Valley. The cooling influence of San Francisco Bay maintains the grapes' freshness, and after fermentation, 70% of the Malbec is oak-aged for 4 months for a good integration of flavours and smoothness. A bit of Syrah is blended in for an extra layer of structure and further smoothness in this luscious red.
