Winemaker Notes
I had been searching for a Malbec for years when I found this one on the slopes of Red Mountain in the Columbia Valley of Washington. I like Malbec harvested later than other varieties, so these grapes were picked at 26.2% brix. This contributed to the blackberry and cocoa characteristics that Malbecs are famous for. I chose to age this in 33% brand new oak and 67% neutral oak. After 19 months of aging, all of the intensity and depth that makes Malbec one of my favorite wines emerged. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.
Food Pairing Notes
Buffalo Ribeye, Camembert Cheese, Cheesecake with berry compote.
