Vineyard Notes: Vaglio Aggie Malbec is sourced from the Espíritu Vineyard in Gualtallary, Uco Valley. The vineyard is located at 3,838 feet above sea level. It was planted in 2008 and is comprised of sandy loam with a stony profile. Sustainble vineyard practices are employed.

Winemaking Notes : The 'Aggie' Malbec ferments with native yeasts and then matures for 8 months in 40% new French oak barrels. The wine is aged in bottle a minimum of 6 months before release.

Tasting Notes: The wine shows notes of butterscotch, chocolate, and baked blueberry pie sprinkled with powdered sugar. A creamy midpalate laced with hazelnuts rounds out this mineral-driven Malbec.
