Lucas & Lewellen’s 2017 Malbec comes from the 35-acre estate Valley View Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara County. Here, the Malbec is grown high on a knoll overlooking the Santa Ynez River, a prime location in this warmer climate vineyard that is home to both Rhone and Bordeaux varieties.
This Malbec has dense flavors and aromas, a creamy texture, silky tannins, and complementary notes of raspberry jam, cherries, cacao, toasted vanilla, and rubbed sage. Winemaker Megan McGrath recommends pairing the Lucas & Lewellen 2017 Malbec with flank steak, prime rib, pulled pork, or, her personal favorite, a rice bowl with sauteed vegetables, sauerkraut, and a homemade green goddess dressing (see recipe on winery page).
