2019 Minuit

The Malbec (70%) in our 2019 Minuit is sourced from three very different blocks from the Red Willow and Quintessence Vineyards. The riper, dense blue fruits, violets and intense color are brought on by the Red Mountain Malbec at Quintessence, while wild raspberry, red plum, and wonderful savory notes are issued from Red Willow. Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) from Quintessence Vineyard adds body and tension to fill in the mid-palate and drive the finish. This juicy blend promises to pair terrifically with your next BBQ.

“This is a blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. The aromas intrigue, with notes of whole tangerine, cumin, cedar, black pepper and plum. Plump palate-coating purple and blue-fruit flavors follow. It’s got a big-time yum factor.” – Sean P. Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast

Behind the Wine

2019 Minuit

Minuit was crafted via countless trial iterations of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon at the blending table, seeking unity and balance. Meaning “midnight,” it is the time of day that delineates one day from the next, at once the beginning of something new and the end of a defined and fundamental cycle. This wine, black as night, embodies this notion: the conclusion of our journey in the vineyard and cellar, and the beginning of discovering the wine’s potential in the bottle and in the glass.

Vineyards

Quintessence Vineyard on Red Mountain – Originally this Malbec and Cabernet Blend was a Member-Only selection made from 100% Quintessence fruit. It became such a favorite that we added select blocks from the famed Red Willow Vineyard to expand case production.
