Tasting notes

2015 Preposterous Malbec:
Intense, fresh and concentrated, showing rich, vibrant blackberry tart, plum and wild cherry flavors, with violet notes. Pure and minerally, with white pepper and citrus oil accents on the finish. Richly textured, with good grip and loooooong finish. The 2010 is still the highest scored Washington State Malbec. Ever.

Preposterous was launched in 2009, a complete shot in the dark. Malbec is a strange thin-skinned on the outside, neon green eyeball on the inside kind of grape that goes black in the fermenter on day three of the fermentation. Kind of odd. Doesn't like a lot of new wood or extended barrel aging. Tons of dense jammy fruit up front. Plays well with a little syrah. The Wine Spectator 94 point 2010 vintage is still the highest scoring malbec in Washington State history. Preposterous.
