The Heringer Estates Malbec has flourished in the climate of the California Delta, with a beautiful aroma of wild blackberries and chocolate. This California Malbec has many of the traditional Bordeaux characteristics, but unlike his brothers on different continents, the Heringer Estates Malbec has a velvety finish that softens instead of bites.
