About This Wine:
And while he treated each venture as if it were his own, Tarrica Wine Cellars actually is his own — and provides him with the opportunity to put his four decades of winemaking experience to work.
Tarrica farms its own vineyards and sources additional grapes primarily from California’s Paso Robles viticultural area, which is ideally situated for growing premium varietal wine grapes. Nestled slightly inland, the warm, clear days are insulated from clouds, fog and severe winds so that sufficient heat reaches the grapes. Following sunset, a marine layer moves over the region and cools temperatures approximately 50 degrees, providing conditions conducive to maintaining outstanding acid structure and overall balance.
Most consider this fluctuation to be a key component to the varietal character displayed in the resulting wines, and the 2018 Tarrica Malbec is an outstanding, delicious example of the variety.
