Horan Estates Winery 2014 Musicians Malbec, Columbia Valley, $26
A superb Malbec from this small Cashmere, Wash., winery, this red opens with aromas of black and blue fruits, cardamom and black cap raspberries on the palate. Sweet, juicy tannins provide a delicate structure that is both inviting and approachable. Horan Estates received gold medal for this Malbec, which also was named best of class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine Awards.
