2013 Three Rivers Malbec, Columbia Valley

2013 was the warmest vintage since 2003 in Washington State. A hot summer led us to start picking in late August. We finished picking the latter part of October as the weather cooled and allowed us to take our time. Bright flavors and acidity were achieved in this ideal vintage.
