Olympic Peninsula winemaker Sara Gagnon has earned a pair of Platinum Awards during her career for her work with Malbec. She’s zeroed in on Sagemoor’s historic Weinbau Vineyard, and this provides an experience that begins with a wide range of berry aromas, rose petals, baking spice, white pepper and toast. Inside, it’s smooth with dark cherry flavors, a bright pop of raspberry on the midpalate and a pinch of dried oregano in the finish of Marionberry. “This has all the components a Malbec should have,” according to one judge.
