Cold Creek Vineyard’s 40-year-old vines deliver a big, bold, brooding Merlot. This Merlot is loaded with plum, boysenberry and dark fruit flavors with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. A “perfect” ripening season in Washington State’s Columbia Valley, 2008 led to full crop yields and outstanding red wines with restrained sugar levels. This our most intense and concentrated Merlot with great ageability.
