Hard Row to Hoe Vineyards 2014 S&M Red Wine, Lake Chelan, $38

This fun, talented and devoted producer on the north shore of Lake Chelan loves its double entendres, and this might be the best yet, thanks to a blend of Syrah and Malbec. These are two grapes that complement the other as the bright acidity of the Malbec lifts the fruit of the Syrah, a naturally low-acid grape. This example reveals aromas of cocoa powder, blueberry and black pepper, alongside flavors of blackberry, plum, red currant and bittersweet chocolate. It won a gold medal and best in class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine Awards.
