2019 Three Rivers Summit View Vineyard Malbec, Walla Walla Valley
Dark as night and inky black in the glass, this wine is lush with juicy brambleberry and bright fruit aromas spilling into a cauldron of big, bold fruit. This robust and structured wine with dense, layered tannins is a show stopper that you can cellar for years to come or enjoy now.
Our 2019 Summit View Vineyard Malbec delivers rich, satisfying aromatics and flavors. Truly a jewel from Walla Walla Valley, this is a brilliant expression of Malbec.

We had a snowy start to the 2019 growing season and a wet spring without much frost pressure. The weather improved in June and continued with a nice, warm summer. We picked the malbec on September 27, right around when this short yet impressive harvest came to a close. Higher acidities and lower alcohols are to be expected with our wines for this vintage that are showing tremendous age-ability which is something harder to achieve in a hotter vintage.
Summit View Vineyard was developed in 2009 on 140 acres of hillside above Seven Hills Vineyard. The vineyard sits atop of the SeVein Property, in the Southwest corner of the Walla Walla Valley AVA, on a north slope aspect, at an elevation of 1200’.
