2016 Malbec Columbia Valley

Known for its distinctive black purple hue, this Columbia Valley Malbec hits the ground running with savory notes of cured meats, muddled blackberries and baking spice. The mid-palate softens with a lingering acidity that provides a rounded mouthfeel and long finish. Sourced primarily from Weinbau Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope, this wine has the structure to carry its weight throughout while softening gracefully with age. Aged 18 months in 70% neutral, 30% new oak barrels.
