Adelante - Malbec 2020
With our usual earlier pick date, the 2020 retained freshness and acidity, allowing the spice, as well as a bit of Cahors earthiness to show itself. Our goal is to express the vintage and to achieve elemental balance within all the components. Thereby showing the complexity within Malbec to match a wide range of foods from meat dishes to pastas, and Mediterranean fare.
73-year-old, self-rooted vines in alluvial sand and clay soils. The 2020 Adelante Malbec is bold, blue (blueberry) fruit is accented with minerality, earth, & spice. The wine has ample acid, structure, and body to give length to the finish that will develop in the glass and over time.
