The Gamache family and winemaking talent Charlie Hoppes combine to create a classic Malbec nose, showing off a range of earthiness that spans blackberry tea, raspberry bramble, fresh-turned garden, dried leaves and spicy plum. The palate is lush and earthy, boasting bold flavors of boysenberry, blueberry and blackberry tea. The acid is zippy and bright, keeping every sip bright and bold. This won a gold medal and best of class sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.
