2016 Wild Boar Malbec
We produced our very first Wild Boar Malbec in 2013, and to this day, our Malbecs are easily some of our most sought-after bottlings. While this grape has a long history in its homeland of Southwest France, it has experienced an incredible resurgence over the past couple decades (thanks largely to Argentina's tireless efforts to elevate the grape's prestige). With our Wild Boar bottlings, our goal is to similarly highlight Malbec's classic character and maximize its quality potential. Its deep inky color is a great precursor to its flavors of blackberry, blueberry, plums, earth, and mocha. Accompanied by additional Bodeaux varietals, the depth and complexity of this wine is astonishing, and while the additional cellaring has made this wine even more enjoyable, it still have several years ahead of it!
