2017 / Red

2017 RESERVE MALBEC

The Malbec grape hails from Cahors in southwestern France just south of Bordeaux and had also been used as a blending component in Bordeaux wines for many years before achieving its recent “rock star” status in Argentina. We normally make a small amount of Malbec wine each vintage to potentially blend into ISOSCELES Reserve and other wines, however starting in 2012, we made a small lot specifically for this limited release of Reserve Malbec. We hope you enjoy yet another great vintage of this wine with the 2017 Reserve Malbec.

Tasting notes

Appearance: Bright, deep purple/ruby colored core with black secondary hue, with thick, well stained tears on the glass.

Aroma: Aromatic with ripe black fruit of black cherry, black currant and a little berry jam, oak and barrel spice, a little dried autumn leaf with subtle floral elements.

Palate: Dry, near full bodied, fresh with ripe black fruit, vanilla and oak notes on the entry. The mid-palate shows savory spice and dried tobacco leaf character with grippy tannins and balanced acidity that keeps the palate fresh and clean. The moderately long and clean finish, shows continued savory notes, firm tannins and subtle cherry candy with camphor accents. With a unique flavor and textual profile, the 2017 JUSTIN Reserve Malbec is well suited to pair with bold flavored foods, without the weight of other full bodied wines.


Food pairings

It pairs well with a Texas style chili, grilled lamb chops seasoned with salt pepper, garlic and a little rosemary, or with Spanish chorizo and Manchego cheese.
