Stottle 2008 Malbec (Horse Heaven Hills)

Pluck a tart berry off a Puget Sound hillside and you'll get this sort of flavor. Not quite fully ripe, but complex and earthy, with peppery spice. For a Malbec it works, bringing a sharpness and focus to the wine. This could almost pass for a Loire valley red, but for the deep fruitiness. At 12.8% alcohol, it's quite impressive. Paul Gregutt
