44% Malbec / 22% Cabernet Sauvignon / 22% Merlot / 12% Cabernet Franc.

Aged 30 months in Neutral French Oak.  Aromas of blue and black fruit with purple flowers, this wine has beautiful mocha and cocoa nib on the finish.

To be "fast" in road racing you must maintain the highest speed possible through the corners and get to the Apex of every turn.  The Apex is the exact point on the inside of the turn where your car must be so you can be back to full throttle and it's different for every turn.  Our goal for every vintage is to find the Apex.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A Malbec driven wine that jumps out of the glass and entices the nose while dancing on the palate. Full-bodied wine with plenty of dark and red fruits, silky tannins, and a long persistent finish that bodes well for aging.
Production Notes
Punched down three times daily. Pressed slightly sweet to allow for both primary and secondary fermentation to complete in barrel. We blended several times to get just the right balance between these varietals emphasizing that the whole is better than any of the parts.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine pairs best with a juicy blue cheese burger. We also have been enjoying this wine with roasted pork and red meats like let and NY steak.

This wine really opened up beautifully. Served it over the weekend with some friends and everyone was groovin' on it.
