2012 Malbec - Heart of the Hill Vineyard : Red Mountain
This is our first bottling of Malbec from this vineyard and we think you'll see a bright future in this varietal. Soft and supple tannins wrap a foreground of deep dark blackberry and blueberry flavors to let you know you are experiencing a Malbec with a pedigree like Heart of the Hill Vineyard on Red Mountain. Washington State is growing some wonderful Malbec and most surely will continue to expand acreage. We thank grower Scott Williams for his vision and skill. Enjoy!
