Malbec

2016 Malbec

Aromas of blackberry blossom and black pepper lead into flavors of mixed berries and spearmint. A classic Washington state Malbec, this wine is viscous and creamy with medium tannins and a long, sweet oak and black fruit finish. This wine is full of flavors and will pair with lean meats like flank steak or chicken thighs with a wilted spinach salad.
