2008 Malbec - Verhey Vineyard : Yakima Valley
This gem of a vineyard 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 abound with herbal notes of eucalyptus and rosemary making 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 6/26/10; Only 75 cases were produced; pH 3.68, TA 6.26 g/L.
100% Malbec (Verhey Vineyard)
Barrels: This wine was aged for 22 months in fine oak barrels from Saury (15% new Bulgarian oak barrels and the balance seasoned French oak by Vicard).
