William Church Winery 2010 Gamache Vineyards Malbec, Columbia Valley, $34
Malbec, a grape from Bordeaux that has become famous in recent years in Argentina, is a strong candidate for Washington’s next big thing. This is a great example of what the state can produce, using grapes from Gamache Vineyards near the town of Basin City. It opens with aromas of dark plum, blackberry, watermelon, strawberry and mint, followed by rich, dark, spicy flavors of mineral, black cherry and pomegranate. It’s packed with bright acidity and sturdy tannins, which provide ample structure for this fruit-driven red wine.
