2015 Malbec - Heart of the Hill Vineyard : Red Mountain
Malbec has come to Washington State and found a new home, and boy are we glad. 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!
