    Farella Malbec 2018 is a testament to the uniqueness and dedication that Farella, a distinguished winery, brings to the craft of winemaking. Malbec, a grape variety that has found fame in Argentina but originates from France, is rarely celebrated as a single varietal in California. However, Farella has been pioneering its own version of Malbec since 2008, treating it with the finesse typically reserved for Pinot Noir, rather than the robust approach often associated with Bordeaux grapes. This innovative handling by Farella highlights the grape’s versatile character, offering a wine that is both sophisticated and accessible.

    The 2018 vintage is a showcase of Farella’s gentle approach in the cellar, emphasizing the importance of not overbuilding the tannin profile and avoiding the use of new oak to preserve the wine’s delicate nuances. Aged in neutral Taransaud barrels and crafted with minimal intervention, this wine is a clear expression of the varietal’s inherent qualities. With a production of only 120 cases, the Farella Malbec 2018 is as exclusive as it is delightful.

    Upon examination, the wine reveals a lighter color than one might expect from a typical Malbec, yet it lacks nothing in depth or complexity. The aroma entices with a bouquet of maraschino cherries, white flowers, and cloves, subtly layered with white pepper, creating a harmonious blend of fruity and rustic notes. The taste is equally compelling, with a smooth and light texture on the palate, punctuated by a refreshing zip of acidity that balances the wine’s savory aspects with its fresh, fruit-forward profile.

    Farella Wine has achieved a remarkable feat with its Malbec 2018, under the skilled hands of the winemaker and consulting winemaker, whose names are synonymous with quality and innovation in the wine industry. Their expertise is evident in every sip, reflecting their philosophy of treating the Malbec grape with the respect and gentle handling it deserves.

    The Farella Malbec 2018 has garnered critical acclaim for its exceptional balance and unique presentation of the Malbec varietal. Critics praise its ability to navigate the fine line between savory and fresh, highlighting its light yet impactful presence on the palate. The combination of fruity aromas with rustic elements, such as cloves and white pepper, receives special mention, showcasing the wine’s ability to offer a complex sensory experience. The careful aging process in neutral oak barrels is lauded for allowing the true character of the Malbec grape to shine, resulting in a wine that is both elegant and approachable. This vintage from Farella stands out as a noteworthy example of the potential of California Malbec, offering a distinct and memorable tasting experience.
