Clear deep red. Mullein, spearmint and white pepper on nose. Cherry, blueberry, blackberry, spearmint and white pepper in mouth. Mild seed bitterness in finish, with time, moderate skin astringency across middle of tongue. Lovely example of the fruit-and-herb expression of Washington state reds in general, and Malbecs here in particular.

Very good Malbec. Very smooth, can easily be drank with a light dinner or casually.

Waterbrook 2011 Malbec. Super inky in color. Gun powder on the nose, mineral. Ripe black berries. Plum with a little acid pretty soft, medium dryness.

Dark, inky with an herbaceous nose, subtle hints of celery. Very smooth and well rounded with a delicious palate of blackberry, boysenberry, mint and a hint of white pepper. Very easy drinking.

Light, fruity not a winter wine but flavourful none the less. Would buy again. Good wine for less than 20.00.

Just okay. Not much flavor for a Malbec.
