Tasting Notes

Malbec loves the sun! 2018 was an extraordinarily long, sunny vintage in the Walla Walla Valley. This delicious wine opens with aromas of blueberries, huckleberries, peppercorns, and mocha. Mouthwatering flavors of juicy blueberries, black cherry, and dark chocolate are complemented by silky tannins. A special wine from a special vintage. Enjoy!

Drink 2021-2031.
