Business manager Jonathan Kaczmarek earned a finance degree at the University of Wisconsin prior to making wine at Seattle’s Soos Creek. The Northwest Wine Academy product now gets the chance to oversee a few small lots at Rocky Pond for the Dufenhorst family, and he hasn’t lost his touch with this Malbec. Fruit is dominant from the fragrant berry aroma to the opulent blueberry, blackberry and plum flavors saturating the palate. Nicely integrated oak, brown sugar, and a dusting of sweet herbs completes the lovely package. It went Double Platinum last fall at the 20th annual Platinum Judging for Wine Press Northwest, and it ranked as the No. 1 Malbec of the tasting.
