2006 Rockpile Malbec$42.00
2006 Rockpile Malbec
This Bordeaux blend is comprised of 88% Malbec and 12% Cabernet Franc. I am fortunate enough to source the Malbec and Cabernet Franc from the unique climate of the very small Rockpile AVA.
100% French Oak barrels were used for perfect balance and complexity. To provide the necessary structure without the oak dominating the fruit, I used 38% new barrels. The combination of acid and silky tannins allow this wine to be enjoyed while it is young, but also to cellar for 6-8 years.
