Last fall at the Great Northwest Invitational, Woodhouse Wine Estates in Woodinville and winemaker Jean-Claude Beck earned a double gold medal – a unanimous vote for gold by a judging panel — for Malbec produced under its Dussek tier. The nose is full of blackberries, black cherry, parsley, river rocks and chocolate covered espresso beans from its 16 months in 100% neutral French oak. In the mouth, it showcases textural heft, with tannins that slowly soften along a floral finish.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 223 cases

Alcohol: 14.3%
