Tasting notes

Pure and richly textured, with expressive blueberry,with expressive blueberry, blackberry, bittersweet chocolate and smoky roasted herb aromas. Intense, supple and concentrated, showing rich, vibrant blueberry jam, plum, black cherry and vanilla bean flavors. A bit of a noble beast, with solid grip, pillowy texture and forever finish.

Food pairing: Garlic honey smoked duck or Roasted crimini mushrooms wtih Maytag blue cheese
Movie pairing: Apocalypse Now 

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. Wine Spectator 94 point 2010 vintage is still the highest scoring malbec in Washington State history. Preposterous.
