Estate Malbec

The 2010 vintage started with a cool and fairly wet spring that remained mostly frost-free.  The late rains generated a healthy canopy, but one that required careful management to avoid green flavors.  The cool spring evolved into an exceptionally cool summer, punctuated by a three day heat spike in August which reduced yields in many varieties.  September started out warm and ended the same way, giving us the ripeness we were waiting for and we harvested this Dry Creek Malbec between October 8th and 10th.
