William Church Winery 2012 Gamache Vineyards Malbec, Columbia Valley, $38

william-church-winery-logoThe 2011 version of this wine from a small Woodinville, Wash., producer was “best of the best” in last year’s Wine Press Northwest Platinum Judging – and this new vintage is well on its way to being even better. Aromas of succulent dark fruit brood in the glass, and flavors of round, ripe blackberry and black cherry intermingle with notes of dark chocolate and black pepper. Mild tannins and ample acidity give this gorgeous red wine tremendous length. This won a gold medal at the third annual Great Northwest Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 238 cases

Alcohol: 14.4%
