2006 Malbec - Verhey Vineyard : Yakima Valley
This is a gem of a vineyard that is devoted to producing exceptional Malbec in the Yakima Valley. Located in Union Gap with southwest facing slopes, it’s still a late October harvest location that yields intense color and flavors. Concentrated dark berries abounding with herbal notes of eucalyptus and rosemary make this a wonderful food wine. We think it’s made for a savory lamb shank or venison…or even Carol’s pot roast.
Bottled on 7/13/08; only 25 cases were produced. This wine was aged for 21 months in 50% new Saury French oak and 50% once used Vicard French oak.
