Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Malbec from V. Sattui was well-received by the Tasting Panel. It opens with a macerated cherry, raspberry and Ricola bouquet with a hint of toasted coconut. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, delicate and smooth. The flavor profile is a black raspberry and stewed plum blend with notes of milk chocolate and cola. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely extended. The Panel suggested pairing this Malbec with a lamb burger or a pork roast. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2017 Napa Valley Malbec is a big bodied wine that shows intense deep dark purple color and exceptional fruit purity with layers of ripe blackberry, currant, plum, earthy minerality, a touch of oak spice and firm but well-integrated tannins.
