MALBEC, a Washington State GRAPE on the move.

                                                                      Its Malbec Monday.

Photo: #Malbec Monday: Washington Malbec is a GRAPE on the move. (#wawine) Last year in Washington, wineries crushed 1,800 tons of the red Bordeaux variety. Already, the mighty Malbec is the No. 5 red wine grape in Washington, behind Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. (It quickly sprinted past Sangiovese.) I had a remarkable Malbec at Tsillan Cellars Winery recently. Do you have a favorite WA. Malbec? Do tell. Inquiring winos want to know.
