Expect to find a dark purple color, intense black and blueberries, white pepper spice, violets, vanilla, toasty French oak, white chocolate, a broad mid palate with balanced acidity, depth of flavor, and a fleshy sexy round finish.
Our 2014 Lagniappe (LAN-yap) Peak Small Fry is crafted from Malbec sourced from the Snowden Vineyard, just north of Rutherford; and Syrah, hand farmed on our estate located on Atlas Peak in Napa Valley.
2013 is the inaugural vintage for the PATEL Napa Valley Malbec. Sourced from a vineyard that borders South East Yountville and North East Oak Knoll AVA, this wine is evocative of Malbec produced in the Cahors region of Southwest France. Inky, blue-black in the glass with bluebell floral aromas, this wine delights the palate with layered flavors of deep black cherry and coffee bean. Lush, polished tannins round out the long finish.
The 2014 Malbec, from Stagecoach, is superb. Boisterous, exuberant and flamboyant to the core, the Malbec hits the palate with serious fruit intensity. Scents of rose petal, lavender, sweet spice and new French oak are front and center, with more mineral and savory notes develop with time in the glass. This is an especially opulent style with tons of near and medium term appeal. Drink 2016-2022.
