Lately, it seems, every time I taste a few Washington Malbecs they make an impression. In the past year I slapped 90-point ratings on quite a few Malbecs from the Evergreen State. The wines tend to be supple, inviting and present flavor profiles that reshuffle the deck of Cabernet and Merlot. The wines come out with a freshness and plushness that combines charm with depth.
This movement has been going on for a while, but the phenomenon is limited enough to be flying below the radar.
