Barnard Griffin 2006 Malbec (Columbia Valley (WA))

This is a lovely bottle, sourced from the eastern Yakima Valley. It's a classic Washington take on Malbec, 100% varietal, with bright and crisp flavors of tart berry, hints of baking spice, plenty of acid but a pleasing softness to the tannins. The lightly leafy, herbal character of the grape shines through, making this a consummate food wine, finished at a pleasing 13.4% alcohol. Paul Gregutt
