Rave review BBQ wine

    • Bold, dry Malbec with a spicy kick and a smooth finish that shows Lodi can do more than just big inky Zinfandel.
    • JC has been working in Lodi for ages so he knows where the best fruit is (this Malbec is grown sustainably and puts some of the local fruit bombs to shame), and JC gets first dibs at harvest time thanks to Angel funding.
    • Anytime we get a big wine that drinks this smoothly, we know it will be a hit. It's big enough for red wine lovers and smooth enough for folks just getting into dry reds.
