Malbec grape being a slip skin (the skin is not attached to the pulp) generally loves a hot dry environment.  2017 allowed our Gamache Malbec to shine with classic blue expression, chewy tannins and bright happy plum notes.  Picking extra early allowed us to maintain freshness to retain the subtle secondary baking spice notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove.  – Anna Schafer Cohen

Dark, deep red. Baking spices, cloves, pepper, grilled bread. Medium acidity and density for a Malbec. Tannin hits the roof of the mouth, while plum juice, cinnamon, exotic star anise, and clove fill the palate. Beautiful savory and secondary notes. Long pleasant finish that will open up with more oxygen. This Malbec holds a significant amount of tannin and would be happy in your cellar for a year, or with a lengthy decant before drinking.

The 2017 Night Owl Estate Blend is a more Merlot-dominated cuvée that checks in as 56% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc, 16% Petit Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in 40% new barrels, it's still vibrant purple/ruby-colored and has a Pomerol-like bouquet of ripe black cherries, cassis, dried violets, tobacco, and damp earth. Ethereal, medium to full-bodied, with beautiful tannins and considerable elegance, drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years.

The 2017 Artist Series Schafer from Schafer checks in as 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, and 17% Cabernet Franc that spent a full two years in 40% new French oak. Deep ruby-colored with a meaty, spicy style in its red and black fruits, tobacco, dried spice, and loamy soil aromas and flavors, it gains freshness and purity with time in the glass and is a seamless, medium to full-bodied, gorgeously textured effort. It's a terrific value to enjoy over the coming decade or more.

More Pauillac notes of cassis, tobacco, and cedar pencil emerge from the medium-bodied 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Owl & Crown, which has a balanced, pure, elegant texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's another classy wine that will keep for 15+ years, if you're so inclined. There are a scant 268 cases produced.

Similarly purple-hued, the 2018 Syrah Estate Fred was not destemmed and was also brought up all in neutral barrels. A wonderfully complex, balanced wine, with notes of blackcurrants, blueberries, lavender, pepper, and hints of scrub brush, it hits the palate with medium to full body, a ripe, rounded, supple texture, beautiful purity, and a great finish. It’s a little gem of a Syrah to enjoy over the coming 10-12 years. -Jeb Dunnuck
