  • 2017 Januik Malbec Champoux - USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Horse Heaven Hills (4/6/2021)
    Day 1: Dark purple. Cherry, black licorice, spice, ripe plums and dust. As my brother indicated on his note, firm tannins. This needs some time but at this moment solid 89 points
    Day 2: Dark purple. Sour berries, spice, black licorice, floral and dust. Short to medium finish and needs time to fully develop. 89 points
    Day 3: A bit softer and rounding into form. Cherry, sour berries, floral, dust and earth. Showing this could evolve into a better wine. 90 points
    Recommendation: I would hold these until 2023 and beyond. (90 pts.)
