As the name suggests, our 2018 Bare Knuckle Malbec holds no punches, with dense violet hues, smashed blackberries, dried herbs, and a full bodied hit of tannin across the finish.
Our 2018 Bare Knuckle Malbec was grown at the Waxman vineyard in La Cresta, with its higher elevation and cooler nights making it an ideal location for this variety. Petite Sirah was blended in to build the color and intensity, enhancing its bold, and full bodied character, making for a perfect Bare Knuckle wine.
