I am a big Malbec fan, a huge Washington Malbec fan and an even bigger fan of the 2008 Malbecs that I have had the pleasure to barrel taste in recent months. In September, I had the pleasure of tasting Lantz Cellar’s 08 Malbec and it was amazing. Since then, I have been telling people to buy it as soon as it becomes available in the spring, because it is sure to sell out in a hurry. Anyone I saw carrying home a bottle of Lantz Cellar’s Rattlesnake Hills Syrah from Gusto last month, I made sure to tell them about the upcoming Malbec.
Now you too can taste this exquisite Malbec and get a peak at its potential. Kevin Lantz invites you to:
Come experience this exciting new up and coming varietal for Washington State. Currently aging in new Tokaj barrels with oak sourced from the Eperjesi Mountains of Northern Hungary. Aromas of plum, pencil, and watermelon candy nicely integrated with tobacco and dark spices.
Lantz Cellars will be barrel tasting the 2008 Malbec this Saturday, November 14, from 11:30-4:30pm. In addition, complementary tasting of the previously released:
- 2006 Columbia Valley Cabernet
- 2006 Yakima Valley Syrah
- 2006 Buoy Vineyards Reserve Syrah
- 2006 Rattlesnake Hills Syrah
Bean pointed out that if kept on talking about the Malbec like that, there might be none left for me. Good thing for me, Kevin Lantz has decided to start selling futures of this exquisite Washington Malbec. The futures price of this wine is only $23 each. After its spring release, this Malbec will retail for $29.
