Small Fry

2013 NAPA VALLEY

Malbec

Small Fry perfectly captures the dark fruit, medium tannin and balance of classic Malbec. 

Small Fry exhibits medium, rich red color; and possesses a vibrant nose of red currant and red cherry aromas with subtle dried herb notes.

Lively on the palate, Small Fry exhibits crisp fresh fruit flavors with very round tannins that firm up the finish and give it good length.
