The 2014 Bonneau Sonoma Valley Malbec is sourced from two vineyards at the north and south ends of the Sonoma Valley that offer the influences of the cooler southern exposure, complemented by the longer ripening time in the warmer northern valley. Dark garnet and violet hues reveal this wine's intensity and structural depth. In the glass, aromas and flavors of mountain blueberries, blackberries, and baking spice abound. Medium-bodied and succulent, the juiciness arrives with fully integrated tannins and well-balanced acidity.
