Winemaker Notes

Very dark purple in color, this wine has aromas of currants, black plum, and fresh tobacco. Medium bodied with silky tannins and flavors of milk chocolate and blackberry with mocha and pomegranate on the finish. The wine is approachable and very drinkable now, but will mature beautifully for years to come.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: Malbec from the Columbia Valley isn't a wine that I don't often think about, but the 2015 Browne Family Vineyards is a pretty good example of this grape variety. While not as earthy as those found in Cahors, and not as overtly fruity as many from Mendoza, this wine has its place among the top efforts worldwide. TASTING NOTES: This wine is firm, textured, and pleasing. Its aromas and flavors of dense black fruit, oak accents, and earth should pair it well with grilled pork ribs in a mildly spicy sauce. (Tasted: April 17, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

A large and geographically diverse AVA capable of producing a wide variety of wine styles, the Columbia Valley AVA is home to 99% of Washington state’s total vineyard area. A small section of the AVA even extends into northern Oregon!

Because of its size, it is necessarily divided into several distinctive sub-AVAs, including Walla Walla Valley and Yakima Valley—which are both further split into smaller, noteworthy appellations. A region this size will of course have varied microclimates, but on the whole it experiences extreme winters and long, hot, dry summers. Frost is a common risk during winter and spring. The towering Cascade mountain range creates a rain shadow, keeping the valley relatively rain-free throughout the entire year, necessitating irrigation from the Columbia River. The lack of humidity combined with sandy soils allows for vines to be grown on their own rootstock, as phylloxera is not a serious concern.

Red wines make up the majority of production in the Columbia Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety here, where it produces wines with a pleasant balance of dark fruit and herbs. Wines made from Merlot are typically supple, with sweet red fruit and sometimes a hint of chocolate or mint. Syrah tends to be savory and Old-World-leaning, with a wide range of possible fruit flavors and plenty of spice. The most planted white varieties are Chardonnay and Riesling. These range in style from citrus and green apple dominant in cooler sites, to riper, fleshier wines with stone fruit flavors coming from the warmer vineyards.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
