Steele Writers Block Malbec 2014
|Region||California, North Coast, Lake County|
Our #2 Red Wine from our June 16, 2018 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.
Winemaker Quincy Steele's experiences working in Argentina inform this wine and its style. Native yeast fermentation, extended macerations, and cooler fermentation temperatures give him as much control as possible with respect to extracting. Aged in French, Hungarian and American oak (equal parts, although only 15% new). Aromas and flavors are very pronounced ripe red berry and black fruit, and spice with medium acid and moderate tannins. Extremely versatile food wine that pairs well with most grilled meats and grilled vegetable preparations. Try a grilled flank steak with chimichurri sauce, a cassoulet or a cheese & charcuterie plate.
