The Wine Introvert — Joshua Maloney on Cabernet Sauvignon, COVID and a Seattle Gem

I love to talk about wine with people who share my passion for it. We open bottles, we trade stories about travel and soil types, terroir and residual sugar, and we talk of taste and food and restaurants. We recommend wines to one another, we drink, and we learn a lot.

In Wine Talk, I introduce you to friends, acquaintances, and people I meet as I make my way around the world, individuals who love wine as much as I do, who live to taste, who farm and make wine. You’ll appreciate their insight, and I hope you’ll learn something from them as well. 

Another day, another Zoom Virtual Tasting. . .  and an excellent one at that.

Joshua Maloney was the main attraction, along with wines from three brands for which he serves as consulting winemaker. They are highly enjoyable pours, and they represent great value. These are wines to purchase by the case and share with family and friends.

Here’s a rundown of what we tasted, after which we’ll get back to Maloney. (I’ll publish reviews of the wines on my Mise en Place website soon.)

2019 Roaming Dog Chardonnay, Columbia Valley ($14)
2018 Roaming Dog Red Blend, Columbia Valley ($14)
2018 Dixie & Bass Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley ($18)
2018 Be Human Merlot, Columbia Valley ($17)

Maloney, who has a degree in chemistry from Cornell, started out in the industry as an assistant winemaker at Heron Hill Winery, in New York’s Finger Lakes region. His next stop was Napa and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, where he spent time as a lab technician and cellar worker. Estancia Estates was next — he was in charge of the Merlot program there. In 2005, at 32, he moved on to Chateau Ste. Michelle, where his title was red winemaker.

Maloney has also added to his experience at Milbrandt Vineyards and Wahluke Wine Company, and boasts more than 100 90-plus scores (thus far) for his wines. In addition, he has a single-vineyard project that intrigues me.

“Each year I will contract one acre of Cabernet Sauvignon from a grower and vineyard I respect. I will tailor the winemaking to accentuate the terroir of that site. I will document the winemaking here,” he notes.

Since 2016, Malony has worked as a consultant, and Aquilini Family Wines, the name behind the brands we tasted during the Zoom session, made a wise decision when it hired him. You can taste his experience in the bottle. Here is Maloney in Wine Talk:

James Brock: How has COVID-19 changed your work and life?

Joshua Maloney: I’m embarrassed to admit this, but the pandemic hasn’t affected me adversely, either professionally or personally. I’ve been working remotely since 2016, when I started consulting exclusively, and that work has actually expanded considerably over the last year. As far as personal impact, I’ve been able to spend a lot more time with my daughters (12 and 14), which I’ve enjoyed immensely.

Please don’t ask them how they feel about that. I’ve always been a homebody, so not being able to go out and socialize in person hasn’t bothered me that much. Quarantine hasn’t been too difficult for introverts like me, which hasn’t received much press, probably because we’re introverts.

JB: Tell us about three wines you think are drinking well at the moment. What makes them worthwhile?

JM: I’m knee deep in harvest right now, so I’m not actually drinking much wine. Partly because of the old adage that “it takes a lot of beer to make wine” — but mostly because I try not to drink too much during harvest — I frequently get calls or texts at 4 am with issues that arise during picking and don’t need my judgment clouded from the night before.

However, like most winemakers, much of what I drink is wine made by colleagues. Recently, I had some Chenin Blanc from Pacific Rim that was really enjoyable, very dry and crisp to the point of being almost austere, with very lively aromatics. I also had a Roussanne from Goose Ridge that impressed me, very rich and lush on the palate with ripe fruit character on the nose. One wine that I made for Aquilini that I’m also enjoying at the moment is the Be Human Rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon. I really like how this incredibly powerful grape can make a Rosé that is very delicate and perfumed.

JB: If cost was no consideration, tell us the one bottle you would add to your personal collection, and why?

JM: Probably something from Sine Qua Non. . . I’m not sure which one, though. I’ve always been a big fan of these wines, but also of the winemaker, Manfred Krankl. The wines are incredibly expressive and powerful, and his approach to winemaking has been an inspiration to me.

JB: What is your favorite grape, and why?

JM: Cabernet Sauvignon, hands down. This grape can produce wines in such a broad spectrum of qualities. They can be simultaneously powerful and elegant, with complexity and layers that show pronounced characteristics unique to both the vintage and the vineyard in which they were grown. I also like the fact that it takes a practiced hand to bring out these qualities and frame them in an enjoyable fashion.

With other varieties, one can be accidentally successful with application of technique and produce an enjoyable wine, but that rarely happens with Cab. Discipline, study, and attention to detail are required to show the best of what this grape has to offered. It’s not a grape for the faint of heart.

JB: How about one bottle that our readers should buy now to cellar for 10 years, to celebrate a birth, anniversary, or other red-letter day? 

JM: Not a terribly specific answer, but any full-bodied red wine from Washington from the 2018 vintage would fit this bill. The 2018 reds are turning out to be some extraordinary wines with dense, rich tannins that will definitely allow them to age well.

JB: Where is your go-to place when you want to have a glass or bottle? COVID-19 has put a crimp on going out, but pre-pandemic, where did you go?

JM: I don’t really have a go-to place outside my own home, especially in 2020. But before this year, it would be most common for me to have a glass (or more) of wine at a friend’s house.

Most of my friends are in the wine industry, many of them winemakers, and it’s very common when winemakers get together for them to open an obscene number of bottles of wine, take a taste or two of each, then set them aside. It may seem wasteful to many to end the night with a dozen or more open bottles that are more than half full, but for winemakers that’s not the case.

Wine cannot be truly enjoyed until it’s opened (although a case could be made for the anticipation also being part of the enjoyment). And winemakers, perhaps more than most people, enjoy the experience of learning about a new wine most of all. So for us it’s not a waste, but an amazing gift to have another like-minded person with whom to share so many new experiences.

JB: If there was one thing you wish everyone would keep in mind when buying and drinking wine, what is it?

JM: It’s not as complicated as you think it is. There’s always been a lot of gatekeeping in the world of wine, but there are no right or wrong answers anymore. In fact, there never were. Drink what you like, how you like, and pair it with whatever food you like.

JB: What is your “wine eureka moment,” the incident/taste/encounter that put you and wine on an intimate plane forever?

JM: Spring semester, my final year at Cornell (1995), Introduction to Wines class. A few weeks after the class started we got to the section on Burgundy, and the last wine we tasted was a 1959 Vosne-Romanée (sadly, I don’t remember the producer). I vividly remember having an emotional response to this wine, akin to chills up and down my spine. I had never had a reaction like that to food or drink before, but many times from music and art. I thought to myself, “If wine can make people feel this way I need to be a part of this world.”

JB: What has been the strangest moment or incident involving wine that you have experienced in your career?

JM: I don’t think I’ve had many strange moments or incidents involving wine, but I did have a notable encounter that set me on my current path. After college, I was struggling to find an entrance into wine production and instead flirted with a few different careers. During that time my paternal grandmother died, and I traveled with my family back to Upstate New York for the funeral service.

During the wake, I was chatting with lots of relatives and family friends. Many were asking me what I wanted to do with my new degree in chemistry, and I inevitably started talking about wine. It turns out that one of the friends at the service had a son-in-law who was the head winemaker at a winery in the Finger Lakes. He arranged an introduction, and a short time later I was offered an assistant winemaker job, and the rest is history.

JB: What is your favorite wine reference in a work of literature or in a film?

JM: Reamde, by Neal Stephenson, has a very quick, almost throwaway reference to a dry riesling from Horse Heaven Hills. I was almost giddy when I read that, because I know the author lives in Seattle and was probably thinking of a specific wine when he wrote that, and chances are I know the wine (or at least know of it). It made me feel a personal connection to the author for a brief moment.

Onion and wine: a trendy combination

May 14.Itsmywine staff

Think Mediterranean clams, medium-rare steak or fresh Münster with a white crust are better for wine today? If you do everything right (and forget about the era of the “banned”), then, of course, there will be a sense in the right combinations. There are about a thousand and one taste cards on this topic. But we again allow ourselves to abandon conventions and cross out stereotypes. Wine can be combined with anything, as long as, as they say, it was beautiful! And it fit the mood. It is necessary to be more democratic, more democratic. Once we already did rubric "Wine and Vinyl". This time let's go to fashion * . In other words, in a combination of "wine and onions."

Wine: Pino Grigio Venezie Corte Giara IGT by Allegrini 2013

Pinot Grigio from Corte Giara , a young and more democratic project of the legendary wine house Allegrini from Italy is a wine that you can drink even alone, without fear for your condition. It's as light as grape juice, which is why Italians tend to fill entire refrigerators with it. Cheerful and refreshing wine smells of wildflowers and white apples. The wine demonstrates restraint and accessibility, but at the same time it will not be “forgiven”.

Look: modern girl, independent so much that she is ready to wear men's things

Wine: Elena Walch Chardonnay Alto Adige DOC 2013

“You are my Chardonnay, Chardonnay! Because I'm from the north, or something . .. ". Elena Walch is an example of an independent and businesslike woman from the very north of Italy, from the Alto Adige region. Once upon a time, she took her husband’s brand under her control and brought him to an unprecedented level of fame, almost to the skies (the brand’s legendary wine, also using Chardonnay, is called Beyond The Clouds ). A bottle of 100% Chardonnay has a bit of a contradictory character - it is a bright straw and balanced wine with light floral tones and a subtle aroma of ripe bananas.

LUK: Avangard street old with character

Wine: Matua Pinot Noir 2013

Conceptual Pino Noir from New Zealand, with a bright smell woods and stewed black berries. This is an advanced farm wine Matua made by the main local winemaker. It was aged for a short time in steel vats, and then for 8 months in oak barrels. Not heavy, high-quality and fragrant wine.

What kind of wine to drink in isolation

then he lost his job and confidence in the future, and someone, unfortunately, is sick. It’s not easy for everyone today, but wine helps to brighten up the routine and isolation a little. Wine journalist Vlada Lesnichenko helps you figure out what kind of quarantine you are.


Your new alarm clock is in quarantine. A bottle of trendy, refreshingly fragrant, effervescent and effervescent unkindness in the refrigerator (together with the spring sun outside the window and hot cheesecakes in the pan) will help you get up at a time appropriate to social norms, even if remote work does not require a clear schedule. Easy-to-lift alcohol, invigorating, like a cold shower, foam, simple, like morning exercises, aromatics. Morning joy!

Pelaverga from Verduno

Active, prolific, but rare, like a good lover. In the commune of Verduno, near the famous Piedmontese Alba, in the skillful hands of a few winemakers, it is transformed into flexible, berry wines with spicy nuances. She is considered an aphrodisiac not only for the provocative ambiguous name, but also for the exciting strawberry-violet aroma. She was simply created for high-quality quarantine sex with those who had previously disappeared at work. Only she, like that notorious G-spot - try to find it!


He is like children: he smells wonderfully of “quack-quack” shampoo, beckons with lightness and low alcohol, can be cheerful and sparkling or obedient and quiet, perfectly friendly with spicy cuisines of the world. But when you have nutmeg every day, it becomes unbearable, just like children with a sudden drop in remote learning. Give them a vacuum cleaner, a potato peeler, or just a bag of microwaveable popcorn, and step aside and sip your favorite nutmeg already. For example, with seaweed chips. You deserve isolation in isolation!

Jurançon Sec

Once purely sweet regions produce excellent dry wines: long, viscous, deep, like a long-term marriage. Between the elements, between the Atlantic and the Pyrenees, two wonderful thick-skinned varieties with a high level of both sugar and acid live and live - gros mansan and petit mansan. They were created in heaven to be together on earth. Although gros means "large" and is more common in the vineyards of southwestern France, while petit is small, it is more valued. Is it clear who's in charge here? Who is the husband and who is the wife? That's it! For peace on the family quarantine front, stick to this concept.


Open, friendly, productive. In Burgundy, he was planted during a plague epidemic. Much less fuss than with this Pinot Noir of yours. And as the epidemic subsided, by decree of Duke Philip II, the Bold Game was expelled back home. As a person who had unwanted contacts, or everyone thought he had. And so he, like game, is forced to rent an apartment somewhere south of the center. And he may like this apartment, as well as the game of his new South Burgundy granite soils of Beaujolais, much more. While your loved one is in isolation, send them a bottle of Blueberry, Violet, Spicy Fleurie. Please come back soon when it's all over.


Do you remember the Portuguese green that made us so invigorated on the summer verandas in that past life? This is the same: life-giving, encouraging, calling to exploits not only the recalcitrant Basques (and it is from their country), but also those who work or educate themselves remotely. Its basis is a white variety that once jumped over the nearest French border and changed its name from korbu blanc to ondarrabi suri. He brought along his favorite French souvenirs - high acidity, love for aging on the lees, noble aromatics and the ability to combine with seafood. Local fishermen advise drinking it right in front of the computer, without unnecessary ceremonies, from thin wide glasses, eating sardines, and what's there, sprats and sprats straight from the can. Do not crumble on the keyboard!


Movie theaters closed not so long ago, and we already miss the aroma of popcorn and bright blockbuster colors. TV shows and homemade puffed corn, preferably with a high level of diacetyl, that is, fried in butter, will save us. And we need the same creamy, ripe, quince wine that seeks to convert its malic acid into lactic. Chenin loves this business very much, both on the Loire and in South Africa, especially when he was aged to his heart's content in a good old barrel. Pour popcorn into a bowl, pour into a chenin glass and press play!


A.k.a. Spann in the far north of Piedmont, a.k.a. Chiavenasca in neighboring Lombardy. There it is silky, non-alcoholic, more accessible, open and understandable, but keeping you in suspense to the last drop. What you need for an evening game of mafia, and even better, Monopoly. The standard Monopoly, by the way, can be easily converted into a wine one by sticking the names of wineries or the names of dream cru vineyards on top. And "Crocodile" online with friends on a wine theme is perhaps the funniest of wine entertainments. Believe the person who was lucky enough to see how the last Champion of the Russian Sommelier Competition Grigory Chegodaev showed "pyrazines".


A real healthy variety, it is not for nothing that the universities of Barcelona and Washington are studying it. The citrus-fruity sharello has unusually high levels of the antioxidant resveratrol, which helps it fight diseases in the vineyard. And we, real zozhniki, are sure that in wine it does not lose these miraculous properties. In padmasana or, more simply, in the lotus position, scharello is drunk very well. Om!

Pinot noir

Circumstances turned out to be higher, and you still fell into depression. Call on over-the-counter medicine in the form of pinot noir to help. He is moody, whimsical, complex, introverted. Delivers some inconvenience with its early maturation, thin skin and disposition to various sores. He likes to surround himself with mystery and demands dancing with tambourines - read, a long decantation. But despite the frills and waywardness, he is infinitely desirable, and everything can be forgiven him, as well as accepted in almost any form.
