2016 Estate Malbec
This 100% Malbec starts off with a nose full of blueberry along with spicy aromas of white pepper, nutmeg, and a hint of vanilla. The baking spices continue in the mouth, coupled with dense blueberry nectar and even a little chocolate. The acidity and supple tannins balance out the fruit making this a definite crowd pleaser!
Review Of Washington Wines:
This resembles the “Black Wine” of Cahors with its inky purple color and intense aromas of blackberries, blueberries, black cherries, black roses, maduro wrapper and black violets. The flavors are dramatic, as well, with black and blue fruits that are infused with black licorice, dark cocoa, French roast and minerals. The wine deepens on the back with macerated berries, roasted nuts, mocha, toffee, lanolin and charcoal, followed by a lasting chewy ripe tannin finish. 19/20 points.
