Since we first planted the vineyard in 1999 we have grown Malbec, selling most of it to other wineries and using a small amount ourselves for blending. Finally we decided keep the grapes and to produce a Malbec. The original name of the Malbec grape was Cot, which we considered using for this wine. Instead, however, we call it EntreCOTe which is French for a ribeye steak...which also happens to pair perfectly with this wine. To add roundness and complexity we blended in Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to produce a wine with character and grace. It's full bodied yet not overpowering and enjoyable with cheeses or your favorite steak.
