Pepper Bridge

Since our first vintage of Malbec in 2003, we’ve sourced our 100% Malbec from Pepper Bridge Vineyard in Walla Walla. In 2014, Chuck was offered an extra row of Malbec from Pepper Bridge Vineyard allowing us to produce a vintage that was available to both our club members and the general public.

Tasting Notes

"A dense, dark garnet/purple bathes the glass with beautiful, translucent dark magenta legs. Ripe dark fruit displaying plum, cherry and blackberry jam braided with violet, vanilla and a hint of white pepper intrigue the nose. These flavorful notes are reflected on the palate while supported by a somewhat chewy, rich mouthfeel, very fine tannins and accentuated with a playful acidity that elevates the dark brambly fruit to the finish accompanied by elegant yet rustic minerality. Pair with bison, or grass fed beef and grilled vegetables." ~Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
