Puget Sound islanders shined with Malbec during our tasting, and Ken Bloom’s experience with clone 9 Malbec from the Bosma family of Diamondback Ridge Vineyards in the Rattle- snake Hills led to a gold medal. It’s a fruit-forward, vibrant and easy drink of blueberry, blackberry, plum and Red Vines licorice that comes with a pinch of anise. Enjoy with the rack of lamb at the Bloom family’s on-premise Bistro 5511 in Freeland.
