Malbec 2013

Columbia Valley, Washington

WINEMAKER NOTES

Once again our Malbec was crafted from the renowned Double Canyon and Gamache Vineyards in the Columbia Valley. Each site is remarkable in its own way and brings complexity and character to this wine. The earlier ripening site of Double Canyon delivers floral and perfume notes, where Gamache Malbec is known for dark berry fruit and herbal aromas. These two lots were picked at different times and fermented separately to develop their own true identity all the way through barrel maturation. After tasting and evaluating the two distinct lots, the best barrels were chosen and blended together for this beautiful representation of Malbec.
