Coming to life in the glass, the 2010 Malbec offers balanced structure, fruit intensity and an enduring finish.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Advocate - 90 points - The 2009 Malbec Doc Stewart Vineyard spent 17 months in 46% new French and American oak. Notes of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, lavender, and black cherry lead to a spicy, potentially complex wine with a velvety texture, good depth, and significant aging potential. Give it another 1-2 years of bottle age and drink it from 2012 to 2021. It compares favorably with similarly priced Malbecs from Mendoza, Argentina. - Jay Miller

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

Burly and inky blackberry dominates with a floral-lavender vein and a lush, gamey streak. Bitter cocoa, plum, and fresh acidity add character to this excellent example of Northwest Malbec. - Marcus

2007 Wine Spectator - 91 points - The purple-colored 2007 Malbec offers up aromas of wood smoke, white pepper, meat, black cherry, and blueberry pie. Opulent on the palate with layers of succulent fruit, it makes up in exuberance for what it lacks in complexity. Drink this feel-good effort over the next 6 years." - Jay Miller

Made from grapes grown in the Gilbert vineyards on the south facing hillsides of the Wahluke slope. This wine takes off with an aromatic rush of dark berries, sweet herbs, black licorice and charred cedar. The ride continues through an ample, juicy palate rife with chewy tannins and cruises smoothly into a lengthy mineral finish. Drink now through 2018. - the winery
