Our very first release of varietal Malbec from La Sirena! We are excited to introduce this 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. In 2013 I had the opportunity to buy some 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. Super yummy stuff!
Tasting Notes: 2013 Malbec (tasted 5/18/16 by HPB)
This 2013 Malbec from La Sirena is very dark blackberry jam in color. The aromas are driven by ripe deep black fruit characteristics, berries, plums, black cherry, pomegranate and a hint of root beer and spice. There are pretty, sweet, toasty, French oak notes in the nose as well. 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 from this variety and a long lingering finish. The blend is 100% Malbec from a single vineyard site in Knights Valley. This is a real treat, something different and a really tasty fun wine. Enjoy!
