Estate Malbec 2012

Columbia Valley, Washington

WINEMAKER NOTES

This expressive Malbec exhibits a beautiful nose with aromas of violets, mulberry and cigar box. Prominent nuances of spiced fruit, leather and pencil shavings are also very noticeable after a short while. This wine will come to life with even more aeration and will surprise you every sip of the way! The color is deep and inky, like a good Malbec should be. Its texture is velvety and supple, showcasing bright red fruits, smooth tannin and good acidity in the finish. This wine pairs remarkably well with food and has long aging ability. Dishes such as grilled lamb, pulled pork, Indian cuisine and empanadas will compliment this wine beautifully.
