Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
We combined focused, spicy Merlot from two different vineyards with a dark, intense, tannic Malbec to make a wine of spectacular structure and balance. The complexity and acid/tannin harmony are uniquely Arizona and make this a special wine. Great for pairing with a range of foods, this is one of our largest blends of 2015 at only five barrels.
