Great NW Wine: October wine of the week

Martin-Scott Shaw Vineyard, Red Mountain 

Rating: Outstanding!

Wenatchee Valley grower/ winemaker, Mike Scott goes outside of this estate program for this superb example of Malbec from acclaimed Red Mountain.  This provides aromas and flavors of blackberry, cranberry and even hints of floral notes, all backed with spice and beautiful balance through the finish.  Its a wine that earned a gold medal at the NCW Wine awards.
