2017 Crybaby Malbec
I've become friends with a guy from Chile who makes barrels, he told me that the Argentinians love his barrels, so I tried 'em out. Now I love them too! Thanks, Alejandro!
Tasting Notes: Malbec, it takes like Malbec...
Pairing: Really good with hotdogs and fresh French fries
Grape Variety: Malbec
Vineyard: Jagger's Rock
Vineyard Region: Keremeos
Winemaker Notes: We treated this Malbec like a king, a king crybaby that is: Small fermenters, punched down by hand, but I mixed it up with a rough split of American and French oak, can you tell? Malbec can be a little sensitive, but it has a rough side, it reminds me of a song from a movie I saw once: "a king cry-baby with a tear in my eye, and if you mess with the king you're gonna cry, baby, cry..."
Time in Barrell: 30 months
