Inspired by the winemaker's longstanding love of surfing, Maverick's blends 65% Cabernet Sauvignon with 26% Malbec and 9% Merlot. Much of the fruit comes from Alexander Valley. Exotic in nougat and currant, the Malbec adds depth and length, providing a burst of soft blueberry and lavender with a subtle twist of mint.
