Seven Bridges Winery 2013 Kolibri Vineyard Reserve Malbec, Columbia Valley, $32

Portland winemaker Bob Switzer sources from eight vineyards in Washington for his impressive Seven Bridges portfolio featuring Bordeaux varieties, and here he casts a spotlight upon Kolibri Vineyard, a 7-acre planting just south of historic Cold Creek Vineyard in the northwestern foothills of Washington’s Rattlesnake Mountain. Aromas of black cherry, Jolly Rancher grape candy, fennel and fresh dill include some light toast. Supple tannins make for an easy drink of blueberry and Marionberry flavors, backed by another rub of fennel that’s part of the juicy finish.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 150 cases

Alcohol: 13.2%
