"A forward, breezy style, with pretty violet, blueberry and cherry flavors, caressed by a rounded vanilla note. Drink now. 30,000 cases made." (WS)

"Medium purple, loaded with black cherry flavor, easygoing, a crowd-pleaser." (WA)

"High Note is a dark, extracted type of Malbec with intense color, robust black fruit aromas and a rich, deep palate with core acidity and then monstrous, sweet berry flavors along the edges. It’s hefty, fat and saturated, but also sweet and jammy. Delivers quantity and volume for the price. " (WE)

Winery Notes:
The velvety texture and deep flavor of the small juicy berries of High Note’s Malbec grapes are distinctively influenced by the environment in which they are grown. Our Uco Valley vineyards, high in the Andes foothills of Mendoza, enjoy the perfect combination of elements for growing this unique varietal. Intense sunlight, cool temperatures and dry conditions allow for the fruit to slowly mature until handpicked for optimal flavor.

The result is High Note’s brilliant violet color and with intense, sweet spice on the palate balanced by notes of plums, cassis, blackberries, and black cherries. It is creamy, smooth, and ripe in the mouth with soft, round tannins and a long silky finish.
