2017 Preposterous Malbec
Tasting notes

Preposterous is defined by its texture and richness. Inky purple with intense aromas of blueberry, blackberry, bittersweet chocolate and smoky roasted herb aromas, it is concentrated and supple with gobs of black cherry, blueberry, black plum and sweet vanilla bean flavors. Open and generous in its youth with plenty to look forward to during its development for the next decade or more.

Food Pairing: Garlic honey smoked duck or Roasted crimini mushrooms wtih Maytag blue cheese.

Movie Pairing: Apocalypse Now

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