PRESSED MALBEC, SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 2012
NVWE Notes: This quietly seductive red is “dark and dusty” to the nose, where dried blueberry, blackberry, black currant, dark plum and violet join cedar, tobacco, mace and a hint of Thai basil to create a complex, if slightly low-key perfume. Things are firm and deftly balanced on the palate, where a bit of tannic grip and a dusty-earthy note underpin the core flavors of sour plum, blueberry, black currant, cola, star anise, clove and baking spices. Food-friendly through its lingering finish, it will be especially tasty with spice-rubbed barbecued meats. 150 Cases produced.
