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.
