Beautifully delineated, the 2015 Seed Malbec is a small lot single-vineyard wine that is aged for 16 months in new French oak and, I’m happy to report, has a long life ahead of it. At this stage in its development, the nose is quite primary and is heavily laden in fresh blackberries, plums, and macerated strawberries rendered more complex by attractive notes of sweet tobacco, bitter chocolate, and violets. Winemaker, Giuseppe Franceschini’s training in the Friuli region of Northern Italy has gifted him with a light touch, and that sensibility translates in his reds. Fresh and elegant, there is a mounting energy in this wine, with a thread of acidity adding lift to well-structured tannins. Minerality makes its presence known on the finish, emerging through layered black fruit, spice, wild fennel, and sandalwood. 14% ABV | 94-Points. 2015 Malbec Tech Sheet
2015 Red Wine (Cabernet+Malbec)
Generous and layered aromas of smoky boysenberries, black currant, plum, graphite, dark chocolate shavings, and violets fill the bowl of the glass. The 2015 Seed Red Wine is a poignant blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Franc. As with the Seed Malbec, the Red Wine blend spends 16 months on new French Oak. 2015 proved to be yet another cool vintage in Mendoza, gracing this wine with stunning purity and vivid freshness. An understory of fine tannins lends structure a core of juicy black fruit that gradually subsides to a finish tinged in gravelly minerality, bay leaf, and green peppercorn. 13.7% ABV | 94-Points. 2015 Red Wine Tech Sheet

The Ultimate Expression of Malbec
Originally cultivated in the Bordeaux region of France, Malbec grapes came into their own in the fertile soil and perfect climate around Mendoza, Argentina. Seed Wine is made from premium grapes grown on a single, high-altitude estate in the Altamira district of Mendoza.
Seed Wine’s intense flavor comes from early pruning, which forces all of the vine’s energy into only half the fruit it originally set. The clean, fresh nose features rich blackberry and plum notes, with a hint of chocolate. The entrance is wide—but not heavy—with sweet tannins and a dry, vertical acidity, followed by an exceptionally long, clear finish.
Seed Wine’s grapes grow on 42-year-old rootstock that penetrates the rocky alluvial soil, all the way into limestone deposits, imparting the grapes—and the resulting wine— with a balanced and well-rounded complexity.
Our growers irrigate their prized vines from glacier melt that flows to the estate in ancient canals, and insist on using only hand-cultivation techniques. This includes pruning away nearly half the grapes shortly after flowering to create exceptional flavor and intensity in the remaining fruit.
Seed Wine is the result of absolutely ideal growing conditions and Giuseppe’s near-maniacal control of everything from cultivation to the aging process, which takes place in 100% French oak barrels he toasted himself. The velvety, rich, complex taste experience captures the spirit of adventure Tony and Alex discovered in Argentina and redefines what a Malbec can be.
Malbec is the quintessential wine of Argentina, and the country’s quintessential dish is steak. But Malbec is not limited to beef; it pairs well with lamb, venison, barbeque pork, chicken, sausage, and savory pies. Seed Wine’s full body and complexity also pairs nicely with spicy dishes and strong cheeses, such as aged cheddar, feta, or blue. Enjoy a glass at dinner with a friend because wine tastes better when it’s shared.
