Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This is Chateau Tumbleweed’s first foray into Malbec and we’re pretty sure you’re going to see a lot more of this varietal in Arizona’s future. This wine has gorgeous floral elements of violet and lavender coupled with deep, brooding characters of cassis and ripe plum. A definite star from the up-and-coming Carlson Creek vineyard!
