Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Walla Walla Valley Malbec struts its stuff with a dark, inky hue, explosive flavors of fennel, basil, oregano and chive ending with a silky smooth finish of ripe berry compote and cassis. Malbec and skinless, boned chicken thighs are a perfect fit. This 100% Malbec is filled with worn leathers, cassis and woody herbs.The solid tannin structure gives way to a long lingering finish. The intense aroma of ripe mountain blueberry jars your senses by a beginning of black raspberry, and a middle of fennel - black licorice and ending with a pleasantly tart ripe cherry-plum finish. It is age worthy and we recommend one hour of breathing before drinking. This is a serious wine that can be paired with grilled medium-rare beef, i.e. Florentine style T-bone or Porterhouse steak.

Winemaker Notes
As always, Malbec is a very tactile grape to work with; inky black skins lock themselves together into a sticky velvet cap that makes punch-downs (four times a day) a real challenge!
