2011 Malbec Receives Best of Class at Great Northwest Wine Invitational

Oct 14, 2014

Great Northwest Wine has awarded Maryhill Winery 2011 Malbec a Gold Medal and deemed the wine Best of Class!

Maryhill Winery 2011 Malbec, Columbia Valley, $17: New Zealand native Richard Batchelor came from Napa Valley in 2009 and has taken an already top winery to another stratosphere of quality. This affordable Malbec shows why this red Bordeaux variety is so good in Washington. It opens with aromas of ripe blackberry, cherry reduction sauce and black pepper. On the palate, if offers flavors of Rainier cherry, cranberry and pomegranate, all backed with impressive acidity and approachable tannins. Perfect with flank or hanger steak. (13.6% alc.)
