Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
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.
Production Notes
90% Malbec 10% Bonarda
Winemaker Notes
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.
