Awarded Double Gold at the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
Malibu Ridge is one of the few vineyards in the Malibu Coast that grows Malbec. At over 1,900 feet in elevation, our grapes benefit from abundant sunshine and cool nights. Aged in French Oak barrels for 32 months, our Malbec has a dark inky intensity, with aromas of plum, fig, blackberries, cranberry, roasted almond, chocolate, and very light white pepper.
Balanced with ripe red fruit and oak notes, the tannin's are soft and well-integrated, with a lovely chocolate/cherry finish. Our 2014 Malbec will drink beautifully now with a decant, or will improve gracefully over many years to come.
Dedicated to Sherry’s father, John Martyn, who passed away in 2013 at age 91. A WWII veteran, John served in the South Pacific as a gunner on a B24 “Liberator” Bomber. Loving husband, father, brother and grandfather, his memory will live forever in our hearts.
A Bordeaux blend of 89% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Malbec was aged in French Oak barrels for 32 months. A rich, dark garnet red wine with aromas of vanilla, caramel, coconut, and toasted almond. Other notes consist of plum, berries, red apple skin, floral notes, hibiscus tea and spices (black pepper, nutmeg, licorice). Smooth with a great balance between velvety tannin's, bright fruit notes, and spices.
