Jack Canyon Malbec

2016 – Medium to full-bodied

Barely translucent, slightly murky garnet-to-brick; medium to medium-full body. Earthy black fruit on the nose, with a black licorice hint, tobacco, humidor and plank notes. Good weight, feel, balance and extraction—plummy, red berry joins black fruit and chocolate in the mouth. Good structure, length of flavors and length of finish.

Winemaking

This wine was made in the vineyard. Grown in the high-altitude Alice Vineyard, latitude 46 degrees north. The altitude slowed down the ripening process and ensured the grapes developed enough acidity in addition to full, ripe fruity characteristics. The day and night temperature swing enhanced the ripeness vs acidity, while the longer time in the intense sun (higher altitude) unveiled riper fruitier notes. Barreled down to tank from the 2016 harvest early autumn 2020 using as little oak as possible.

Why We Love It

A Gold Medal Malbec

This 2016 Malbec earned a Gold medal and 91 point rating at the World Wine Championships. The judges described the wine as having “aromas and flavors of chocolate-covered toffee, pickled berries, spiced plums, and blueberry crepes. A voluptuous, chocolatey Malbec that delivers brooding fruit and spice.”

I guess I'm the last to know about Washington State!

I have always enjoyed Malbec from South America, so I didn't really expect to LOVE this one from Washington's Columbia Valley. It was berries, and chocolate, and just the right amount of dry to pair fantastically with my burger - I will be stocking up on this one!

This wine is amazing!

The first time I tried this wine was at a wine tasting I was doing. It was my 4th wine and I didn't know what to expect. Then when I tasted it, it was amazing! It had so much flavor. It is almost like a smoky, chocolate taste that is so smooth. I reordered this one right away!

An Untrained Palate Descends Jack Canyon

Starting with the nose, Jack Canyon is rich. In just giving it a swirl and taking a good, proper sniff, I take in what my untrained olfactory sense tells me is oak and berry jam. Upon tasting, my equally untrained pallet concurs – jam, current, and a dense woodiness. Jack is like one of those books that is complex, dense, and encourages you to keep indulging yourself.

One of the Best Malbec's I've ever tasted!

I am so impressed with this wine! It has not only a rich bold flavor, but it is incredibly smooth and balanced. A beautiful wine that will pair well with your next steak dinner! I recently had a customer tell me that he didn't realize 16 bottles would fit in a box and next time planned to fill the box with this wine. Definitely a winner here with this wine!

So interesting!

I have recently started on my red wine voyage, if you will, and found that I like malbecs in general. I read the description of this one and was a bit skeptical but boy am I glad I tried it. This will be a staple in my house until its gone. Super jammy at first, which I love, then it smoothed out into a subtle earthy finish. And it pairs nicely with so many things! Steak and taters, pot roast, spaghetti and meatballs! Get you some!

Love this Malbec

I just cannot say enough about this beautiful red, It is so well balanced and has notes of chocolate and dark fruit. Also this pairs so beautifully with a good steak, we served it at a dinner party last week and all the couples even the non-red wine drinkers fell in love with this wine!!!

Smooth yet bold

This is one of the BEST Malbec I have had in a LONG time! It is very smooth yet bold! It was fantastic with balsamic marinated kalamata olives!
