2012 Northridge Malbec
The 2012 Northridge Malbec comes from a vineyard on the Wahluke Slope known for producing outstanding Malbec fruit. There is beautifully expressive red fruit on the nose. Layers of cherry, raspberry, and strawberry are layered with hints of cola, chocolate, and anise. A dusting of white pepper and toasted oak are mixed with toasted caramel and baking spice. The palate offers an explosion of juicy red fruits with great acidity and plenty of tannin.
