The 2016 Tenor Malbec was crafted from a single vineyard along the Royal Slope in the Columbia Valley AVA. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were hand-harvested over several early mornings in the late fall. Upon arriving in the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted to ensure only pristine clusters go into the wine and then fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks. Using only the free-run wine, it was then moved to custom French oak 225L barrels (75% new) for cellaring with over 40 individual evaluations by our winemaking team. Only 95 cases were bottled.

Tasting Notes

Bright and energetic, this wine will open up well with time in the bottle. A touch more floral and feminine in its youth, the 2016 Tenor Malbec will put on weight quickly with time.

Awards & Accolades

"The 2016 Malbec also has plenty of upfront oak yet backs it up with beautiful blue fruits (smells like a blueberry pie), chalky minerality, and complex, incense, spice, and floral notes. It’s ripe, has beautiful purity, a fleshy, sexy texture, and no hard edge, all making for a thrilling wine."
