Malbec a delicious red for Pacific Northwest
For centuries, Malbec has played a minor role in its native Bordeaux. But thanks primarily to the burgeoning Argentina wine industry, the bold red grape has come into its own.

But Malbec is proving its versatility by providing superb examples in Southern Oregon and Idaho’s Snake River Valley.
