K&L Notes

Winery Notes: "Series M takes its name from the Malbec and Merlot which predominantly define the style of this wine. Series M is sensuous wine with a firm core structure for aging. Malbec provides its black fruit aromas and fleshy texture, Merlot adds softness and red fruit aromas, and Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure. This blend is 45% Malbec, 34% Merlot & 21% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep red and black fruit leads this Malbec driven vintage of the Series M. A nose of blackberries, black cherries, raspberry and beef bouillon is followed by balsamic, dried flowers and chocolate with a beautiful perfume undertone. The palate is soft and inviting with fantastic weight. Vilafonté is the first American and South African joint wine-making venture. This ground-breaking project is a partnership between Mike Ratcliffe (Warwick Estate) and Zelma Long and Dr. Phil Freese (of Mondavi fame - two of the most heralded grape growers to ever come out of Napa Valley). The name Vilafonté is derived from the primary soil type of the 100-acre estate. Recorded as one of the oldest soil types in the world at 1.5 million years old, this character forms the foundation of these wines The age of the soil is important as it is deeply evolved and has been stripped of much of its inherent capacity, that encourages smaller vines, lower yields and highly concentrated fruit. Vilafonté produces only 2 wines: Series C (a Cabernet driven Bordeaux blend) and Series M (a Malbec/Merlot based Bordeaux blend)."
