This wine is from the late great winemaker Denis Malbec's own winery. He made wine for some of the top wineries in Napa including Kapcsandy but was sadly killed in a car crash in 2017. This wine is certainly a tribute to his skills. Purple in color. The nose has cassis, slight cherries, spice with slight tarragon note. On the palate, this is has a nice structure. Pinpoint fruit hanging with tannins. The fruit has cassis and cherry and while ripe, not over done. This drinks well now but consumed over a couple days, it was better on Day 2 suggesting its best days are still ahead. Nice finish. A great example of mountain fruit from Napa and how it needs more time and is less opulent out of the gate than valley floor fruit.
