Winemaker Tasting Notes
2019 Malk Staffordshire Reserve
Release Date: March 2022
The 2019 Malk Family Staffordshire Reserve is a wonderfully concentrated blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Aromatically intense expressions of blackberry, black cherry, and cassis are complimented with nuances of graphite, all-spice, and graham cracker. The palate is full of texture and weight; luscious, but maintains a sophisticated structural framework. This wine is enjoyable in its youth, but is certainly cellar worthy.

There are just 24 cases of Malk's 2019 Staffordshire Reserve, a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon with 25% each Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Loaded with black cherries and framed by delicate cedar and dark chocolate nuances, it's full-bodied, rich, concentraded and supple, not overly tannic but with a long, lingering finish.
