Lapis Luna Malbec
Lapis Luna is one of our favourite producers of affordable California wines. This winery was reinvented by Drew Stapp and Andrew Nelson in 2018. Having started their careers with the Rabble Wine Company, they set out to reinvigorate this 20 year old North Coast Wine Brand. By partnering with small grape growers in Lodi and North Coast AVA’s, Stapp and Nelson are able to offer wines that are uniquely Californian while never breaking the bank.
"100% Malbec from the Rockpile appellation in Sonoma County, CA. This AVA is Incredibly close to the moon at over 1200 feet of elevation with steep hillsides and shallow soils. The rows have North/East sun exposure which contributes to even ripening throughout. The block is too steep for a tractor so all viticultural practices are done by hand.
On the nose, this wine is purple flowers, lilac, & lavender. Big extraction on the palate yet smooth, velvety, round, and luscious." - Lapis Luna
