Tasting Notes

The beautiful deep purple color of this Malbec will captivate you and the enticing aromatics will invite you to take a sip! Fruit from three vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley lend savory top notes of dried mint and oregano which mingle with aromas of wild blue and black fruit, violets, and caramel. Lush on the palate with soft tannins and nice acidity, the juicy boysenberry and black fruit flavors lead to a persistent finish.

Drink 2019-2029.
