2017 'Quinn' Red Blend
50% Malbec・33% Merlot・17% Cabernet Sauvignon
Released 11/23/19 ・ 14.9% ALC
Our fourth vintage of Quinn has layers of intense aromas and flavors. Black cherry, plum, dried strawberries, pipe tobacco, cinnamon, and cola; followed by hints of spice cabinet, white pepper, and BBQ. Flavors of dried cranberries, bright cherry, and hints of dark strawberry on the palate. Grippy tannins lean into a lingering finish of fig and plum.

Our first Malbec-dominant red blend was made using the best Malbec, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon barrels hand-selected by our winemaker. The Malbec portion of this wine comes from Numeral Mountain Vineyard in Entiat, accounting for 50% of the blend, nearly making this a vineyard-designated wine. The vines from this site are grown in shallow granite residuum soils along with traces of loess and volcanic ash at an elevation of 1200 feet.
