Obelisco Estate 2012 Malbec, Red Mountain, $45

By on June 2, 2016

obelisco-malbecObelisco Estate used 100% estate-grown Red Mountain fruit for this wine, which displays its home AVA’s warm-climate, deep fruit. Combined with Malbec’s natural tendency to produce grapes with color from the heart of darkness, this wine shows off deep, dark plum and summer blackberry aromas and flavors, closing with graceful tannins and a hint of black tea. This earned a double gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
