With a profile of fragrant flowers and lush fruit throughout, this charming Malbec reveals layers of intricacy at every step. Vibrant aromas of wildflowers, jasmine, and honeysuckle evoke spring and summer blooms, and raspberry and strawberry add succulent depth to the bouquet. Darker flavors prevail on the palate: boysenberry, dark chocolate, and lavender. Plush tannins lead into a long, juicy finish to this endlessly seductive wine.

The grapes for this Ms. Behave were cluster sorted, gently destemmed, and berry sorted by hand. The various lots were fermented in bins and punched down by hand 3 times a day. After a gentle basket pressing they were racked to a mix of French and Hungarian oak barrels and aged for 21 months
