Product Description

100% Konnowac Vineyard Malbec. Proving once again that malbec is a bold, big red. Cherry pit, leather and currants flow to desert florals- lavender and sage. Big tannins meet solid structural skeleton with a nose that jumps out at you to a full mid-palate to a long finish. On the second day, subtle notes of orange rind and musk rose arise. Drink now through 2019.

2012 is the vintage that will prove that when Nature is doing what she is called upon to do in these parts and the results are worthy of notice, recognition and dare I say fame. Rainfall held off just when we needed it to and for an extended period of time, allowing us to make exactly the pick decision that we wanted. This is the vintage that will prove that when Nature is doing what she is called upon to do in these parts and the results are worthy of notice, recognition and dare I say fame. As always, we used the D254 yeast, neutral French Vicard oak and punch downs instead of pumpovers. Drink the 2012s- any variety, any winemaker, thoughtfully. This is the year you may just become a Washington wine advocate.

Konnowac Vineyard has the second oldest planting of Malbec (1987) in Washington state. It sits at an 800 ft elevation on Warden Series silt loam with a slight slope aiding in both wind and frost protection. With an average of 8 inches of rainfall per year, this is a vineyard that can be hard during hard years but amazingly rewarding when attention is paid.

Steak, empanadas, rich meat sauce on homemade pasta.

Winery: Flying Trout Wines

Flying Trout Wines 

Flying Trout Wines began years ago with original winemaker Ashley Trout's annual winemaking ventures in Mendoza, Argentina from February until May and in the Walla Walla Valley during the remainder of the year.

The brand was sold to TERO Estates in 2010, moving Ashley and her winemaking to the TERO Estates winery and production facility to Milton Freewater, Oregon. On February 11th, 2011, we opened our downtown Walla Walla tasting room. On Spetembter 27, 2014, we opened our newest tasting room on the southern end of Walla Walla.  

From peppery malbecs out of Walla Walla to the more feminine and fruit forward styles of malbecs often reminiscent of Mendoza, Flying Trout Wines aims to bring you a little bit of the best of the world and nothing else.

Flying Trout Brook Blend 2012

56% Malbec, 44% Cabernet Franc. Bordeaux’s gnarled undercurrent surfaces in this new world creation. Angsty and seductive- winter leaves, Malbec’s black jam and tree bark meet Cabernet Franc’s cherry cola with a hint of paprika and a kick full of spice on the mid-palate. Dried figs and perfume linger. A wine for the curious.

Alain de la Treille Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Our Touraine Sauvignon blanc is crisp and refreshing, with rich, ripe lime and grapefruit aromas. Great elegance with mineral style and despite everything some kind of roundness.

Average age of the vines is 20 years old.

We produce a part of this cuvee with 12 hours skin maceration and another part from directly pressed grapes

Wine was slightly filtered before bottling to ensure wine will remain stable.

Ideal for the Aperitif , any cooked fish such as smoked and grilled salmon but also obviously with a Goat Cheese.
