Jack Canyon Malbec

2016 – Medium to full-bodied

Barely translucent, slightly murky garnet-to-brick; medium to medium-full body. Earthy black fruit on the nose, with a black licorice hint, tobacco, humidor and plank notes. Good weight, feel, balance and extraction—plummy, red berry joins black fruit and chocolate in the mouth. Good structure, length of flavors and length of finish.

Winemaking

This wine was made in the vineyard. Grown in the high-altitude Alice Vineyard, latitude 46 degrees north. The altitude slowed down the ripening process and ensured the grapes developed enough acidity in addition to full, ripe fruity characteristics. The day and night temperature swing enhanced the ripeness vs acidity, while the longer time in the intense sun (higher altitude) unveiled riper fruitier notes. Barreled down to tank from the 2016 harvest early autumn 2020 using as little oak as possible.
