2009 Malbec

Estate Malbec 2009

Columbia Valley, Washington

WINEMAKER NOTES

The 2009 vintage is a dark, fruit driven wine with aroma and flavor expression typical of high quality Eastern Washington Malbecs.

The nose opens up with blackberry and black cherry fruit layered with pipe tobacco, cedar spice, saddle leather and wet quartz minerality. In the mouth, flavors of grape and blackberry continue into a blend of dark fruit and spice. The tannins are full-bodied but smooth and supple and lend weight to the long generous finish.
