Nose

The aromas are driven by ripe deep blueberry fruit characteristics, black cherry, pomegranate and a hint of root beer and spice. There are pretty, sweet, toasty, French oak notes in the nose as well.

Palate

This wine is velvety yet lively across the palate with explosive flavors, silky and mouth coating with seamless barely there tannins. The fruit has a lifted note and a long lingering finish.

Growing Conditions

Announcing our second release of varietal Malbec from La Sirena! We are very excited to bring back this popular new wine. I have made Malbec for various clients from time to time over the last ten years but it has always been as blending wine for Cabernet based blends. Starting in 2013 I had the opportunity to buy a small amount of beautiful Malbec grapes from a nearby vineyard and the result was so delicious I just had to bottle it on its own. The grapes came from a vineyard from our neighbors just over the Napa Valley border in Knights Valley producing an excellent expression of Malbec.
