Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
We’ve had the chance to work with a few varietals from Deep Sky Vineyard in the past (mostly while working for other wineries) and have always been impressed with the fruit quality and meticulousness of the vineyard. 2018 marks our third year sourcing this Malbec, and we hope to continue working with the Asmundson family well into the future. While this wine has big, inviting aromatics, it’s surprisingly restrained and juicy on the palate with a spectacular finish of lavender, cassis, ripe plum, cigar box and fine, grippy tannins. Only three barrels produced.
