A pure delight to smell and taste, this explodes with intense blackberry, fig, blueberry, pipe tobacco, black pepper, and crushed mint. Plush in fruit, polished in texture, you'll find every reason to enjoy this now. Only 200 cases made, a rare value selection for our Northwest Big Reds wine club. - Marcus

The Baer 2013 Malbec was originally intended to serve as a blending component for Ursa, Baer's much-celebrated flagship wine.
While assembling the 2013 Ursa, Baer's cellar-master noticed that every time he opened the Malbec barrels for their monthly topping up, intense aromas of blackberry pie and cracked black peppercorns filled the barrel room. He knew the 2013 Malbec was a special wine that should stand on its own; he proposed that they bottle it separately. The Baer team agreed and Baer Malbec was born.
