2017 Martellotto "My Way" Malbec Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara

About the Wine

Malbec is the dark horse of Cahors and Argentina. Martellotto produces an outstanding expression from the hottest part of Santa Barbara County in Happy Canyon. The "My Way" Malbec is dark as night, inky, and redolent with blue fruits. Flavors of dark plum, cherry, and blackberry explode in the glass and the finish is lush with toasty oak, vanilla, and crushed flowers. The wine is named after a famous jazz standard made famous by another Italian-American, Frank Sinatra. The wine is a blend of 80% Malbec and 20% Petit Verdot and was in French and American oak for 10 months with 10% new oak. This wine is hedonistic in its pleasure. Soft and approachable now, it is fresh and vibrant. It's also a perfect wine to pair with holiday fare.
