Wine Makers Notes: Named after Domaine Bousquet co-owner Labid al Ameri, Domaine Bousquet’s flagship wine is a Malbec-dominant blend. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot add the complex dimensions that elevate this wine from “expected” to “exciting.” The grapes, but only the best clusters come from a single vineyard, located at 4,125 feet, the highest of the estate.
Wine Enthusiast 93 Points: This dark and concentrated Malbec-led blend opens with floral black fruit aromas, cool minerality and a sense of composure. A densely extracted palate qualifies this as a fruit bomb, one dealing grapy but pure berry flavors direct from the Uco Valley. Spice and chocolate notes lend depth to the finish.

Winemaker Notes: The Russian River Chardonnay opens with vibrant scents of lemon meringue, lime oil, floral jasmine and tuberose. As the Chardonnay opens, it takes on notes of pineapple and mango notes. Bright acidity on the palate is balanced with cream soda and candied lemon rind. The creaminess extends through the finish ending with a nice, complementary note of toasted baguette.
