Ledger David Cellars 2015 Estate Malbec, Rogue Valley, $34
Lena Varner’s 16-acre vineyard near Medford, Ore., displays its diversity with Malbec, one of three red Bordeaux varieties grown at decade-old Varner-Traul Vineyard. Of the eight French oak barrels, only one was new, which allows the fruity aromas of Marionberry pie and blueberry to mix with vanilla and toast. It’s both glass-coating and mouth-coating as soft tannins allow for bright flavors of elderberry, blueberry and loganberry to reign. The tasting room on Central Point’s Artisan Corridor is deliciously sandwiched by Rogue Creamery and Lillie Belle Farms Chocolates.
