2012 Cloudburst Malbec
The 2012 Vintage repeated 2011's hot conditions, with warmer than usual nightsaccelerating the time of vintage several weeks advance of its usual timing. The heat created intense flavors in the Chardonnay and it was picked earlier than in previous years, enabling the retention of strong natural acidity and great freshness and length.
The 2012 Cloudburst Malbec tastes of super ripe black plums and dark cherries, and blueberries with a wet tobacco, mint masterstock, ramen, umami character of immense length and allure. Texturally, the wine is like biting into a crisp red apple. And there’s a complete and utter deliverance of retronasal flavor. Alcohol content: 13%
