2019 Brecon Malbec

Our Malbec is brand spankin' new, this being our second bottling. If you procured one last year and weren't a club member you likely bribed somebody, hacked our system, sold your grandmother, or some other such deviousness! Perhaps we can sneakily pour this one in the tasting room when nobody's looking. Say for a couple of quiet weeks, we just don’t have enough to do longer. Bags of bright fruit, a lovely acid balance and a certain softness of texture. Plus, the fine French oak regime imparts cinnamon/nutmeg overtones with hints of candied Vanilla lollies.

Production notes

When in Cahor! You do what they have been doing for centuries and sneak up to 30% Tannat into your Malbec. Being this is a Cahor clone and further being that our new Tannat started cropping, don't be surprised if future Brecon Malbecs are let's say, a little bit more in the Cahor spectrum but of course with that Paso and Brecon twist. To cut to the chase, the current offering could just be our purest Malbec in a long time.

Brecon is at the forefront of a renaissance in Malbec going on right now in California. Fantastic new clones being brought in from both Cahor, the stronghold of Malbec, and Mendoza in Argentina are just revolutionizing quality. Our planting in 2014 was then the second US planting of this particular clone from Cahor. It comes with tiny berries and great promise.
