Winemaking Notes

The 2015 growing season in Columbia Valley was uncommonly warm, reaching record temperatures most of the year. Long days and extensive sun exposure on the Southwest slopes of Red Mountain and Horse Heaven Hills AVAs led to an earlier bud break. The intense heat allowed the fruit to ripen to perfection and resulted in strong, aromatic wines full of complex character.

Tasting Notes

Columbia Valley 2015 Malbec is sourced from Red Mountain and Horse Heaven Hills. Some Cabernet Sauvignon was added to the final blend to elevate the structure of the wine, add complexity and to provide a full, round mouthfeel. This wine is fruit-driven and boasts powerful aromas of dark fruits, blueberry, and hints of spice. Pair Columbia Winery Malbec with any grilled meats like a delicious skirt steak and fresh, roasted vegetables.
