The 2015 Triple R Ranch Malbec holds an intense deep purple color with a slight ruby red rim variation. The nose is packed with aromas of candied, dried prunes, black currant and bold red cherry notes. This medium-to-full-bodied red delivers a punch of rich, lush red and black fruits, with a slight Texas High Plains earthiness. The finish is robust with firm tannins. This red wine pairs well with beef and Italian food entrees.

Description

2015 Antique Red Malbec

Antique Red Malbec pays tribute to Historic Downtown McKinney, the home of our quaint tasting room.  The label features the vibrancy of the town square down East Virginia Street circa 1920 and reminds us of where it all began.  Similar to that of Argentina’s climate and terroir, the hot summer days of the Texas High Plains provide ideal growing conditions for the Malbec grape that thrives in hot weather.  Cooler nights allow the juices to cool and hastens the ripening process.  This superior juice, fermented and aged to perfection in stainless tanks, has mellowed beautifully as it aged!  Our medium to full bodied Malbec carries notes of black currant, red cherries, tobacco and coffee, while the palate finds lush red and black fruits with a hint of black pepper.  The soft finish eases you into another sip of this beautiful antique.

Legend Of The Ranch Story: Antique Red Malbec pays tribute to Downtown McKinney, the home of our quaint tasting room!  When Lone Star Wine Cellars opened in 2003, the majority of the downtown square consisted of antique stores and galleries. Although today the square has seen a regentrification of the original commerce—with posh restaurants and unique boutiques at every corner—the Antique Red Malbec reminds us of where it all began.
