Wind Rose Cellars 2014 Lonesome Spring Ranch Malbec, Yakima Valley, $25

By on February 9, 2017

David Volmut learned at Yakima Valley College and trained at Olsen Estates in Prosser, Wash., prior to launching his own winery on the Olympic Peninsula. Those Yakima Valley roots show with this Malbec that was grown at Lonesome Spring Ranch. This youthful example offers aromas of Jolly Rancher grape candy, blueberry and Chukar Cherry enrobed in bittersweet chocolate. Inside, it’s a smooth and easy drink of juicy blue fruit amid a medium tannin structure that leads to finishing notes of black raspberry, red plum and dark chocolate. These wines are available at their Sequim tasting room and throughout the Olympic Peninsula.
