Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Washington State has become world known for their Merlots and this exquisite wine is no exception, illustrating two of the finest vineyards located within Red Mountain AVA. The wine is well-balanced, structured and rich; aged 30 months in 67% neutral oak and 33% new American oak, it offers a deep garnet hue with complex aromas of bright fruit, spring blossom and barrel spices. Featuring roasted cherry, red currant and dark plum on the palette, the wine is perfectly accented by notes of cedar and sandalwood. Plush, generous and velvety in texture the wine is well balanced and structured with gracious tannins and captivating fruit flavors. Years from peak expression this Merlot will age gracefully while continuing to develop for years to come. Drink now through 2030.
