Mt. Brave Malbec 2013
Wine EnthusiastFrom a site that reaches up to 1,800 feet and dates back grape-growing wise to before the Civil War, this wine is bold and beautiful. It's a study in dusty leather, black pepper and cigar, allowing sauvage, savory aspects to speak louder than fruit. Full bodied and robustly structured, it offers a memorable Tahitian-vanilla note on the finish.
Wine AdvocateThe outstanding 2013 Malbec, 100% Malbec all from Mt. Veeder, offers blackcurrants, licorice, incense and floral notes. The wine has fabulous fruit on the attack and mid-palate. It's full-bodied, spicy and pure, with supple tannins, and should drink well for at least a decade or more.
