2014 Malbec Yakima Valley
This is our 2nd vintage of Malbec. Aged 10 months in French oak barrels of which 40% were new oak. This wine was a beautiful wine to watch ferment. The color was similar to crushed velvet.
This wine can be enjoyed in its youth or cellared to allow more depth and complexity to develop. Pairs nicely with grilled beef, BBQ, Ahi Tuna and fajitas.
On the nose, the wine has a bouquet of cedar, chalk and slate with hits of blackberry. On the palate, blackberry and blueberry flavors are dominant with a hint of clove spice. Licorice spice and more blackberry give the wine a fruit driven finish. The finished wine is a blend of 90% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
