Description

VARIETALS. 100% Malbec.

VINEYARDS. Red Tail Vineyard, Paso Robles. Estrella District.

WINEMAKING. One of the lesser-known varietals to be used in traditional Bordeaux blends and is increasingly celebrated as a South American specialty. It was in the Andean foothills of Mendoza in Argentina where Picchetti’s owner, Leslie, first discovered and fell in love with this wine. Sourced exclusively from a small vineyard located in the rolling plains of the Estrella River Valley on the warmer, east side of Paso Robles. Barrel-aged for 36 months in a combination of French & American oak (50% new barrels).

TASTING
Aroma: Rich dark fruit notes of blackberry, red plum, rose petals, violets, wild berry, vanilla, and a balsamic note leap from the glass.
Palate: Smooth, fruit-forward wine, with balanced acidity, dark chocolate, toasted oak, and moderate levels of tannins.


FOOD PAIRING.
The perfect accompaniment to fire-grilled meats with chimichurri sauce, empanadas, roasted leg of lamb, or your favorite burger with melted sharp cheddar.
