Seis Primas is a blend that showcases Malbec, a varietal that grows very well on the Downey Ranch of Ilsley Vineyards. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot round out the blend, creating a wine that is fruit forward and fun but structured for red meats, rich sauces and long aging. Like the Seis Primas' before it, this vintage is a very dense, dark ruby which belies the softness that follows on the palate. The nose is lead by milk chocolate aromas and ripe raspberry with a touch of vanilla and baking spices. The flavors are structured but soft tannins that fill out the wine without drying out the palate. The backbone will give this wine years and years of ageability. The fleshy richness will make you happy even if you taste it before it's truly "ready" in 8-10 years.
