2016 Troon Vineyard Cuvée Côt Malbec, Applegate Valley, Estate Bottled
We’ve named our Estate Malbec Cuvée Côt to emphasize how different our style is compared to the many malbec wines coming from South America. Côt is the name that malbec goes by in southern France and our bright, balanced and zesty style of malbec was not only inspired by, but also reflects, the elegance and exuberance you find in the delicious malbec wines from Cahors. True to the Applegate Valley our Cuvée Côt is fresh and mouthwatering with rich dark fruit flavors and a long, lingering finish. We recommend enjoying this wine over the next several years due to the pleasures to be found in its charming, youthful personality.
As with all of our wines, our Estate Malbec was crushed by foot, then fermented by our native, natural yeasts in small fermenters. No additives, including commercial yeasts, sulfur, tannins, enzymes, sugar or acids were added to the fermenters. It is bottled after aging in mature French Oak Burgundy barrels for eighteen months.
