Monte Rosso Vineyard Malbec
2013 Louis M. Martini California Malbec opens with an opulent purple color and intense aromas of pie plums and blueberry. Our two acres of California Malbec grapes thrive in the world-class Monte Rosso Vineyard in the Mayacamas Mountains, 1,000 feet above the Sonoma Valley. This is a rich, intense Malbec that expresses the volcanic soils and superlative west-facing location of our unparalleled vineyard. Possessed of a deep red color, the wine offers alluring aromas and flavors including blackberry, clove and black pepper. Oak aging for 15 months weaves in lovely hints of cocoa powder and toast. Refined, velvety tannins create a soft, memorable finish.
