Kiona Malbec 2018

Malbec was “discovered” by the new world wine-drinking public as a superb stand-alone cultivar for fruit-forward, dark, approachable wines with lots of depth. This certainly holds true on Red Mountain, where the wines tend to exhibit bright acidity, blue fruit, and a softer, svelte tannin profile. A small Cabernet Sauvignon component from our 1975 “Old Block” adds layering and structure to this 2018 iteration.

Kiona Malbec 2018

Description

In 15 years Malbec has grown to become Kiona’s fifth-most-planted cultivar on Red Mountain; it’s planted at both Heart of the Hill and Sunset Bench. The variety thrives here, producing wines of uncommon depth and complexity. The fruit is highly sought after by Washington winemakers for its strong varietal typicity and opaque coloration–there is a significant waiting list for wineries wishing to source Red Mountain Malbec.
