Maryhill Winery 2018 Classic Malbec, Yakima Valley $28

By on December 16, 2021

One of key components to the growth of the award-winning program at Maryhill Winery has been the relationship with Tudor Hills Vineyard. That’s on delicious display with this Malbec crafted by winemaker Richard Batchelor. The New Zealand native provides a remarkable example that encompasses so much of what Argentina’s work with this Bordeaux red has made famous, a wine that offers black fruit, spice and earthiness, wrapped up in a tremendous mouthfeel and long finish. It’s the seventh time since the 2005 vintage that the Leutholds have won a Platinum for their Malbec program. Awards: Cascadia International. Great Northwest Invitational.
