2016 Red Mountain Malbec
The Red Mountain Malbec is a sort of celebration wine. Each year, the release is highly anticipated, and kicks off a new vintage of releases for Fidelitas. Charlie selects from specific blocks around the mountain to create his own unique, and well recognized, style of Malbec that has led him to be named “Washington’s top Malbec producer”. We saw relatively cooler temps in the 2016 that allowed the true flavors of the varietal to come through, giving us dark blue fruit tones, a dusting of white pepper, and a delightfully juicy finish. Enjoy now through 2025.
