Boatique Malbec 2013

Set at 2,266 feet above sea level amidst alpine and oak forests. 47 acres of rolling vineyards spread across the picturesque Red Hills Appellation. In the shadow of magnificent Mt. Konocti, the vineyards, planted in volcanic soil, are well drained which is ideal for stressing the vines to create intense, inky, rich wines. Picked from the upper and lower blocks of the Red Hills Estate Vineyard. Destemmed into open top tanks and punched down and pressed. The wine was aged for 18 months in 40% new French oak barrels. The barrels were stirred every three weeks through the aging process. This wine went through 100% native fermentation and is non-filtered
