Kontos Cellars 2012 Summit View Vineyard Malbec, Walla Walla Valley, $42

kontos logoCameron Kontos, a second-generation Walla Walla winemaker, used grapes from Summit View Vineyard to craft this gorgeous Malbec, which ended up the best of class in this year’s Great Northwest Wine Competition. It opens with aromas of boysenberry, molasses and black pepper. On the palate, it provides intensely dark flavors of espresso, dark plum and Baker’s chocolate. It’s all backed with pliable tannins. This won a gold medal at the third annual Great Northwest Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 140 cases

Alcohol: 14.7%
