Winemaker Note & Critical Acclaim:
This 2015 Malbec from La Sirena is very dark in color, a deep purplish-black hue. The nose is driven by ripe, rich fruit aromas of red cherry, black plum, crabapple, and cranberry. There are nice subtle French oak notes in the nose as well, lending a toasty vanilla spice character. This wine is velvety yet lively across the palate; medium body with light, dusty tannins. The wine has a compact structure and a firm, clean finish. The blend is 96% Malbec from a single vineyard site in Knights Valley, plus 4% Syrah from our own Barrett Vineyard in Calistoga. The 2015 vintage in Napa was a very concentrated harvest for red wines especially due to the continuing drought causing very low crop levels." - Winemaker Note

About The Producer:
"Heidi grew up in the Napa Valley in a winemaking family and was destined to become one of California's leading winemakers. It is said that winemaking is a combination of science and art. With a scientist-winemaker father and an artist mother it is no big surprise that Heidi was drawn to the wine industry. With great enthusiasm, a love for what she does, and an incredible wealth of experience, Heidi blends the art and science of winemaking like few can. Since 1988 she has developed a stellar client list of super and ultra-premium wineries. She is currently winemaker for Screaming Eagle, Jones Family, Barbour Vineyards, Paradigm Winery, Showket Vineyards, Lamborn Family, and two newcomers Lynch and Revana Family Vineyards. Past clients include Grace Family, Vineyard 29, Hartwell/Grace, and Oakford Vineyards. In addition to these clients, she does a limited amount of consulting work for Diamond Creek Winery and Niebaum-Coppola (Rubicon) where she works with their winemakers to further improve their wines. Heidi, who loves the ocean and especially scuba diving, also started making her own wine, La Sirena in 1994 with a tiny production of Sangiovese. "I was looking for a name for my wine which would be as magical as I think wine is. La Sirena which means "the Mermaid" in Italian and Spanish is a way of representing two of my great passions". In 1996 she made the first Cabernet Sauvignon for La Sirena and in 2000 the first Syrah."
