"These wonderful wines are the pride of our company." - Francis Ford Coppola
While working on the film Tetro, in Argentina, Francis Coppola discovered the allure of Malbec, which until recently was seldom bottled as a single varietal in the United States.
Malbec is less tannic than Cabernet but more so than Merlot, giving it a powerful structure but more immediate drinkability. Our Malbec was grown in several coastal vineyards, which experience an abundance of afternoon sun, little wind, and well-drained soils. This vintage exudes rich, dark fruits, currants and cassis, but an inherent note of minerals and spice is what makes this wine distinctive and delicious.
