2016 Griffin Creek Malbec

2016 Griffin Creek Malbec

For more than two decades we have been working with growers Don and Traute Moore, crafting the highest-quality wines from their Rogue Valley vineyards since 1989. With temperatures similar to France's Bordeaux or Rhône regions, this area is an emerging Oregon region.

On the Nose: Inky in the glass, the wine coats the bowl similarly to the palate and opens with aromas of plum, blackberry jam, chocolate-covered blueberries, vanilla and anise.

On the Palate: 
Full-bodied and packed with lush dark fruit, violets and sweet spices, it has chewy tannins and balancing acidity, finishing very long. Dense, bold and delicious.

Food Pairings:
Not to be overshadowed by sweet and spicy barbecue sauces, enjoy with pork ribs, short ribs, brisket, burgers, flank steaks and stir-fries with Chinese plum sauce.

Peak Drinkability: 2020 - 2027.
