The Gambler is a generous and full-bodied Malbec from the Lujan de Cuyo sub-appellation of Mendoza. Mendoza’s altitude, aridity, and sandy soils imbue The Gambler with earthy aromas of smoked meats, leather, brown sugar, and a hint of red plum. On the palate the wine is both dense and broad.
Malbec and Bonarda grapes were handpicked and crushed together into stainless steel fermenters where the must was cold-soaked overnight. The mash was then inoculated with a variety of cultured yeasts. The wine fermented dry on the skins, was pressed, and underwent malolactic fermentation in tank and neutral American oak barrels. A light fining and filtration was applied just before bottling.
