With 10% Malbec and 5% Petite Sirah, this is a dark, jammy and richly layered red, offering smoked meat, graphite and black olive. Lengthy, it is soft and supple on the palate.

Winemaker Notes

The name Lion Tamer has become our nickname for Malbec because we use this grape as a blending variety to tame powerful tannins. 

Supple tannins surround the palate. Layers of juicy black currant, dark plum and hints of espresso, with well-integrated notes of baking spice. Effortlessly bold.

Vintage Notes

Every vintage and harvest presents a unique set of obstacles, and we approach every year ready to face the challenge. Vintage 2019 began with occasional rains and cooler temperatures, which brought soil saturation and allowed fruit to mature steadily. Summer helped the grapes to ripen, and the warm days and cool nights of the Fall fostered gradual sugar accumulation and longer hang times. Harvest began slightly later than normal in some areas, with fruit picked at its peak, promising exceptional flavor in bottle.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 5% Petite Sirah
