2021 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 Cabernet 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
Dark, inky purple in the glass while exuding classic Malbec notes of plum, leather and slight hints of cocoa. Velvety smooth upfront on the palate with juicy flavors of blackberry, cherry and slight hints of Cab Franc menthol. The mid-palate only gains in richness with perfectly round tannins and subtle oak complementing each other. Elegant acidity prevents the finish from being cloying, allowing this overall rich, weighty wine to still be a perfect food pairer.
