When Tim Gamble and Teresa Spellman Gamble acquired William Church Winery, they wisely continued the Woodinville brand’s relationship with Gamache Vineyard. Three times the Balsleys earned a Platinum Award with Malbec via Gamache — a run that saw their bottling from the cool 2011 vintage finish as the overall No. 1 wine of the 2014 Platinum. Noah Fox Reed, a product of Walla Walla Community College’s winemaking program, continues that tradition of excellence with this bold and youthful expression of Malbec. The vibrant and complex nose of Van cherry, raspberry, Cherry Nibs and dried herbs comes to life on the rich palate, which includes Craisin and a slice of boysenberry pie.
