Winemaker Tasting Notes

Malk Stags Leap District
Cabernet Sauvignon

Release Date: October 2016

The 2013 Malk Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon represents the excellent growing conditions that the 2013 vintage provided. The wine shows great fruit concentration delivering fresh blackberry and blueberry aromas highlighted by nuanced notes of vanilla spice and Baker’s Chocolate. The wine has depth and structure on the palate, but the ample tannins are both smooth and ripe.
