Best known as a varietal in a Bordeaux blend, Malbec is finding renewed glory and acclaim on its own, as in our first time ever, 2006 Ferrari-Carano Estate Malbec. Malbec is a grape with thin skin and the need for much sun, making it a perfect fit for our estate in Dry Creek Valley, an area known for its hot, dry, sunny weather. Vibrant pomegranate juice, fresh blueberry and ripe plum flavors with exotic nuances of licorice, chocolate and clove provide depth and intrigue, while fresh-picked Bing cherries, blackberry, vanilla and sweet spice aromas add to this wine’s impressive length.
