Deep ruby red in color with black cherry and strawberry on the rim, this Columbia Valley merlot offers aromas of cedar with spices such as white pepper and dried herbs, balanced with a touch of violet and earthy truffle. On the palate, entrance of black cherry, evolve on dense, soft tannins and touches of prune and black cherry while lingering on a well-textured, superb fruit purity and intensity. Notes of roasted espresso, dark chocolate along with touches of caramel and vanilla bean, this medium-bodied wine is pure and elegant with an attractive, savory finish. Another one to two years in the bottle will fill this wine out. Drink now through 2019.
