2018 / Red

2018 RESERVE MALBEC

The malbec grape hails from Cahors in southwestern France just south of Bordeaux where it is known as Cot. It 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 2018 Reserve Malbec.

Tasting notes

Appearance: Bright, deep purple/ruby core with black /blue secondary hue, a lighter bright purple rim with slow forming, well stained tears on the glass.

Aroma: Aromatic with ripe black cherry, black currant fruit and ripe raspberry and plum accents, oak with vanilla spice, dusty autumn leaf, and cedar.

Palate: Dry, near full bodied, with ripe black and red fruit on the entry with vanilla and oak leading the mid palate which has savory notes of dried leaves, cedar and herbs with grippy tannins and fresh, balanced acidity. The finish is moderately long and fresh with notes of cherry candy mixed with dried herb camphor and persistent tannins.


Food pairings

The 2018 Reserve Malbec is full bodied and flavored, but fresh on the palate and is uniquely suited to pairing with flavorful dishes, especially ones with herbs and garlic like dried, cured salami with flavorful sheep’s milk cheeses like pecorino, or with grilled beef or lamb with a chimichurri sauce.
