While working on the film Tetro
, in Argentina, Francis Coppola discovered the allure of Malbec, which until recently was seldom bottled as a single varietal in the United States.
Malbec is less tannic than Cabernet but more so than Merlot, giving it a powerful structure but more immediate drinkability. Our Malbec was grown in several coastal vineyards, which experience an abundance of afternoon sun, little wind, and well-drained soils. This Malbec exudes rich, dark fruits, currants and cassis, but an inherent note of minerals and spice is what makes this wine distinctive and delicious.
Rich, robust flavors of currants, plums, and spice make this wine a perfect match for red meat. Though considered Argentina's premier wine grape, Malbec is actually native to France
