The Woodhouse Wine Estates 2017 Dussek Malbec

Appellation: Columbia Valley

Last fall at the Great Northwest Invitational, Woodhouse Wine Estates in Woodinville and winemaker Jean-Claude Beck earned a double gold medal — a unanimous vote for gold by a judging panel — for Malbec produced under its Dussek tier. The nose is full of blackberries, black cherry, parsley, river rocks and chocolate covered espresso beans from its 16 months in 100% neutral French oak. In the mouth, it showcases textural heft, with tannins that slowly soften along a floral finish.

Rated “Outstanding!” by Great Northwest Wine. (14.3% alc.)

Price: $30

Cases produced: 223

Food pairings: Enjoy with barbecued chicken, pulled pork, lamb chops, fajitas, savory beef stews and roasted root vegetable dishes.
