Wine Review: This wine is a very nice follow up to the 2003 “Terroir Select” Malbec. As I mentioned then, it is rare to find a US made Malbec and Stonehedge is proving they can consistently produce one. This one opens with a very attractive spicy berry bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine shows juicy and tasty black cherry flavors with a hint of licorice. The finish is dry and lingers slightly. We would pair this wine with barbecue ribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rich purple black color, aroma of violet, layers of black cherry, hazelnut and white chocolate. This wine can comfortably age for 15 years.
