2015 Musicians Malbec

2015 Musicians Malbec

Our first ever stand-alone 100% Malbec is the true beginning of song…..we are entertained by the deep, rich rubescent color. The key notes of blackberry pie, homemade vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of candied bourbon tantalize the nose. As the melody sings on, it features black currant, pomegranate and a smooth chorus of red plum. As the fiddle of the wine sings on with the vanilla and caramel, the true celebration of the Malbec is the heartfelt strong and longly held finish! ~100 cases produced

Label Inspiration

Our great grandfather, Mike Horan, was know in the valley as a fine fiddle player. He and our great grandmother, Margaret were known for hosting large parties at the Horan House. Lively tunes can be heard as the guests danced in the many rooms. That was just the beginning of the music and talent that resonated through many generations of the Horan family.
