2017 PC TX Malbec

Because of it’s fame in Argentina, many people seem to forget that Malbec isn’t actually a South American grape. It’s a French variety, known in Bordeaux and also in Cahors. In Texas, it is stylistically closer to that of a Cahors Malbec and has little in common with the high alcohol, big bodied wines coming out of South America. That being said, it is an      interesting , if not fickle, grape to grow in Texas and in certain years can be quite the special wine. It was a favorite of our Winemaker that year, Demi, and she was excited to share our first varietal Malbec with Texas.
