Tom Shula California Malbec 2017

You love Tom's reds - and he's really upped the ante with this one

    • Tom's popular red blends have propelled his success – so when he received carte blanche to craft a new wine, he knew just what to do...
    • ...make another deeply delicious red that embraces the bold flavors of California! Fruity Syrah, inky Tannat, aromatic Merlot and plummy Malbec masterfully make for a new Shula signature you're bound to love.
    • Toss carne asada and chiles with lime and salt – and fire up the grill (be sure to warm tortillas while you're at it!) Fresh Mex tastes even better with a tall glass of this peppery red nearby. 

Aging advice
This wine will be enjoyable on release (see opening notes). I expect it to be most enjoyable over the next 2-4 years.

Serving advice
As with most young reds, this wine will benefit from some air to show its best. You can open and decant immediately before serving, or just pour a bit from the bottle 30-60 minutes before serving.

Local food match
I think this wine would be delicious with flavorful grilled meats like carne asada, pork al pastor, or gyros.
