Our 2017 Yolo County Malbec has pronounced aromas of saddle
leather and mocha and big explosive flavors of blueberry,
cranberry and boysenberry jam. A good grip of tannins balances
the rich, dense weight of the wine. This is a substantial Malbec
that is mouth-filling and opulent.
Due east of Napa, tucked away in northern California's rolling Dunnigan Hills, is a little town called Zamora. But back in the late 1800's, folks around here used to call it Black's Station. At its height, this hub founded by J.J Black boasted a hotel, two stores, a jail, blacksmith shops and a town hall. Today we grow our grapes in Zamora and we like to think that they carry with them the character and frontier-style of that old town.
Robust tannins frame the smooth flavors and make this a versatile wine that will pair well with lamb dishes, a juicy prime rib or lasagna.
