2019 History Summit View Vineyard Malbec
The Malbec from Summit View Vineyard is consistently a deep, black-purple color. I love the fruit that comes from this site because it is persistent in
quality and always delicious, so I really just get to let the vines speak for themselves. Its intriguing floral aromatics are met with a plush and silky mouthfeel that covers the palate in dark, ripe blue fruit flavors. I feel the lofty mid-palate would be spectacular with roasted meats or something coming right off the barbecue.
In 2019, the abundance of snow in February provided ample soil moisture, leading the season into a normal and timely bud break. A warm spring created excellent conditions for canopy growth and early fruit development. Temperatures were mild in the summer, followed by cooler fall temperatures which were ideal for maintaining acidity and developing beautiful fruit flavors and aromas.
