I have lived temperately....I double the doctor's recommendation of a
glass and a half of wine each day and even treble it with a friend.

2009 Malbec

Alcohol: 13.9%
pH: 3.80
T.A.: 0.60g/100mL

On the nose, this wine shows youthful energy with Satsuma plums and dark fruit mingled with black pepper, licorice, and cedary cigar box. In the mouth it is ripe and dense, with a muscular core of figs, dried cherries, and cocoa. A brawny red meat wine, it is velvety but taught, with balanced acid and tannins, and a long, generous finish.

2009 Reasons “Black Magic” Malbec, Horse Heaven Hills 


Reasons is a new winery located in the Artifex facility, and is co-owned, with others, by Susie and Ned Morris (he is also winemaker at Canoe Ridge), This Malbec is impressive. It exhibits a dark ruby color and intense aromas of cherries, wild blackberries, blueberries, fennel, tobacco and dried rose petals. The intensity continues on the palate and is underlain with Horse Heaven scorched earth, roasted coffee beans, bittersweet chocolate and mocha. The back recalls the vigorous traditional-styled “black wine” of Cahors with its spicy (cinnamon, clove) earthy, dried fruit and chewy tannin character. 18.5+/20 points
