Malbec a delicious Pacific Northwest red
Malbec is proving to be a great fit in the Pacific Northwest. The robust red Bordeaux grape has been little more than a bit player until a decade ago, when more winemakers began to focus more attention on it.
Native to France and famous in Argentina, Malbec really shines on its own in the Northwest, particularly in Washington but also in Southern Oregon, Idaho’s Snake River Valley and British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.
We selected a dozen delicious Malbecs we’ve tasted lately from throughout the Northwest.
