Walla Walla Vintners 2008 Pepper Bridge Vineyard Malbec (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

This rare release of a single-vineyard Malbec from Pepper Bridge grapes is a classy, evocative, beautifully realized effort. It begins with violets and raspberries, on the nose and in the mouth, and moves into more full-bodied plum and cherry fruit, surrounded with thick milk chocolate. Some of the particular character of the grapes is sacrificed—this could be Merlot, or Cab Franc, or a blend of all three—but it tastes so good that it really doesn't matter. Paul Gregutt
