2019 Darow Series Malbec

The hallmark and defining character of all of the wines from the 2019 vintage has turned out to be minerality, which our Darow Series Malbec shows openly. With a deep nose of fresh black truffle, cassis, and wet concrete the palate turns to candied blackberries, cinnamon, and currants with delicate notes of violets. The density and compactness of this wine are a sure sign of its ability to age, so we suggest a long, cool nap with enjoyment from 2025-2032. Once mature, or properly aerated in its youth, explore what happens when served with wild boar choripan, chimichurri, and applewood-smoked humita.

Although part of the Rogue Valley AVA, the 2Hawk Estate Vineyard lies in an area known locally as the Bear Creek sub-basin. The two-layered bedrock beneath our soils consists of a shallow volcanic layer, the Roxy Formation, and a deeper, softer layer of alluvial sandstone, The Payne Cliffs Formation. The Klamath Mountains uplifting event, roughly 20 million years ago, began a long erosion process that resulted in our predominately volcanic soils, which are unique to the Rogue Valley AVA. An area of cobbled river rocks in our eastern section and a sandy streak of considerably younger colluvial deposit running through the center of our vineyard site distinguish 2Hawk from neighboring vineyards. Overall, we have some of the oldest soils in the valley and they are characterized as shallow silty- to clayey-loams that are moderately well drained with moderate to rapid runoff.
