About The Wine
This wine is hardcore! It's made from Malbec grapes, grown organically on Defiance Vineyard in Paso Robles where intense daily swings in temperature sculpt a rigid and ripe wine with big and bold dark fruit flavors and high notes of vibrant raspberry. It's a complex and interesting wine that's both agreeable and ageable.
Our Malbec aged for 480 days in 25% new French oak barrels and 75% neutral French oak barrels.
The San Miguel District of Paso Robles is the northwestern-most American Viticultural Area of the 11 AVAs of Paso Robles. Its northern boundary is the county line between Monterey and San Luis Obispo.
The color is glowing magenta. Notes of raspberry, black tea, sweet plum.
