Malbec is a rare gem of a wine, renowned globally for its depth of flavor and complexity.  Known for its plump, dark fruit flavors and smoky finish, Malbec offers a great alternative to higher priced Cab and Syrah.  Malbec is a ripe berry treasure and well worth your time.  It shines on its own or with food.  A popular sommelier secret is if you're trying to please a crowd, Malbec is a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.  Known for its easy-drinking characteristics, Malbec has surged in popularity over the past two decades.  It's affordable, approachable and full of juicy fruit flavors.  Lucky Rock is a collaboration between winemaking brothers Aaron and Jesse Inman who are dedicated to showcasing varietals that flourish in Sonoma County.  They make "wines with intention, not pretension" and produce everyday, easy drinking wines that reflect balance and California essence in the glass.  This Malbec is part of their Prospecting series which is a limited-release, once a year, one-of-a-kind wine made only one time.  This wine will never be produced from the same vineyard or in the same way again.  The 2021 Lucky Rock Malbec has a gorgeous personality and amazing concentration.  It has soft, velvety tannins braced by medium acidity with a very long and enjoyable finish.  This Malbec has a welcoming texture and is easy on the palate.  It flavors of blackberry, crushed violets, brown spice and herbs.  Enjoy!

"Fragrant crushed berries and violets, a suave, welcoming texture and amazing concentration give this wine a gorgeous personality. Soft tannins and rather soft acidity make it easy on the palate and will require no extra aging." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Huzzah! Our yearly, limited-release, one-of-a-kind, never to be produced from the same vineyard or in the same way again wine has a new look. At the core, this series is about the thrill of prospecting and hitting paydirt while keeping the joys of winemaking alive. We've kicked up the aesthetic on this already fun project by partnering with renowned tattoo artists Frankie "DeathCloak" Caraccioli and Paul Dobleman, who collaborated on this year's label - Death and a Lady.

So much blackberry; hints of brown spice + herbs. Soft and velvety tannins braced by medium acidity. Very long and enjoyable finish. "
