Mosaic Vineyards & Winery Malbec Alexander Valley 2005
As dark as they come, this wine starts with aromas of blackcurrant jam and delicate floral overtones. Huge up front berry flavors with blackcurrant, plum and blueberry compote all poised enticingly behind a smooth yet bracing tannin structure. The wine is enjoyable now, yet with the promise of exciting development ahead.
Founded in 1986, the winery is set in the center of our northern Alexander Valley vineyards in the heart of Sonoma County, allowing us to carefully tend each small vineyard lot from bud break through harvest. The winery was constructed with the blending concept in mind, and is equipped for the production and aging of many small and select lots. Every care was taken to enable the winemaker to preserve the quality of the grapes and express his craft.
