Caligiore Malbec Reserva 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Organically grown at over 2700 ft. above sea level in Mendoza, Argentina on the Caligiore Estate Vineyards. This wine single wine comes from an 80+ year old vineyard planted in 1930. Round and rich, this Malbec was completely UNFINED & UNFILTERED and fermented using native, wild yeasts. Aged in small French and American Oak barrels for 18 months, very well taken care of!

2008 Organic Legacy - Dried cocoa nibs with a touch of menthol and rich black cherry notes. The barrel aging softens this Malbec with vanilla and toffee flavors! Homemade pizza with pepperoni brings out the spice! Yum - 4.5 stars!



Tasting Notes:

Rich and smooth with a full body that shows silky vanilla notes along with the rich dark fruit and mocha.
