Truchard Vineyards

2018 Malbec
Pre-Release


Malbec is considered one of the five “Bordeaux” varieties.  This thin-skinned, mid-season ripening grape produces an extremely dark wine with firm tannins.  It has traditionally been used as a blender to add color and structure in Bordeaux wines; it is also well-known as an Argentine varietal.  In 2008, one acre of Malbec was planted in an isolated valley on the Truchard Estate Vineyard.  The vines grow in a light sandstone soil on a steep hillside.  The cooler Carneros climate allows for long “hang-time” and round, ripe tannins.  The resulting wine is dark purple, with spicy aromas, and intense flavors of plum and berry
