Scott Greenberg’s work with these two barrels of Malbec from the Williams family’s Heart of the Hill Vineyard on Red Mountain have found the zone after two years in bottle.

Tannins are refined yet present, leaving room for secondary notes of flint, clove and cherry skins. The North Bend, Wash., producer suggests serving it with roasted meats.
