Hard Row to Hoe Vineyards

A gorgeously aromatic wine that takes time to open up. Savory minerals, licorice and herbs coat the palate and loaded with Lake Chelan character. Slightly floral and bright but with smooth, herbal and spicy flavors. A deep, rustic red wine that pairs with grilled meat. 19/20 Points. Rand Sealey. Reveiw of Washington Wines. "This Malbec is comprised of 50% North Shore (Glacial Gravels) and 50% South Shore (Farmer John Vineyard). It displays a deep purplish ruby color and enticing aromas of blackberry, blueberry, cherry and currant with scents of black roses, mulberry, sage, fennel, violets and incense. On the palate, the wine brims with black and blue fruits that are infused with black licorice, bittersweet chocolate, roasted coffee beans and minerals. The wine intensifies on the back with sensations of pressed fruits, roasted nuts, kirsch and cassis liqueurs and blueberry preserves followed by deliciously ripe moderate alcohol (13.8%) sweetish tannin finish. A top notch Malbec". Gold Medal winner - North Central Washington Wine Awards
