2020 Messer

One of the most surprising aspects of the Calcareous Vineyard has been it’s ability to successfully produce a wide range of varietals. Our Estate Malbec and Cab Franc have always been cellar favorites, and blending the two produces a genuinely stunning expression of our site. The name Messer is in honor of our founders Lloyd and Dana, who’s family name means sword in German.

Tasting Notes
Darkly colored Malbec dominates the appearance of this wine. The nose is a more balanced mix of blueberry along with Cab Francs' cherry and slight herbal mint. The contrasting nature of the blend shows in the mix of rich and structural tannins that frame black currants and rhubarb. Brightly integrated acid leads to a wonderful finish begging for mushroom lasagna or spare ribs.
