Thurston Wolfe 2012 Malbec, Horse Heaven Hills, $30

thurston-wolfe-logoLongtime viticulturalist and award-winning winemaker Wade Wolfe knows the Horse Heaven Hills as well anyone in the industry, and he’s relied on McKinley Springs Vineyard for his Bordeaux variety. This bottle is remarkably suave, dark and layered from start to finish, with aromas and matching flavors of black currant, blackberry, cola, fresh-baked brownie, coffee and crushed leaf. Sandy tannins and mountain berry acidity makes for a medium structure and easy finish. This release equates to just two barrels of wine, and operators are standing by.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 48 cases

Alcohol: 14.5%
