The 2016 Essere Franco Estate Malbec has aromas of blue berries, blackberry’s, and violets with subtle hints of toast and vanilla. The palate is easy and smooth with loads of black fruits with a swirl of dark chocolate that adds to a wonderful finish. This wine would complement a wide range of foods like grilled meats, stews, and hearty marinara dishes.
Cheers and enjoy! Tom Foster, Winemaker.
The 2016 Vintage & Vineyards
The main accolade associated with the 2016 growing season and harvest for the Napa Valley would be mellow. Near-ideal spring bud break, steady flowering, an even fruit set, and a steady stretch of warm days and cool foggy nights of the Summer and Fall where for the most part temperate temperatures dominated.
