Washington wineThe Dusted Valley boys blended in a touch of Merlot and Petit Verdot to round out this superb example of Malbec, showing once again that the red Bordeaux variety continues to have a bright future in Washington. This opens with aroma of dense purple fruit, boysenberry jam and chocolate. It has an intense entry on the palate with flavors of crushed walnut, fresh pomegranate and ripe dark berry. Great acidity and mild tannin help make this a complete wine.
