Cold Creek Vineyard’s 40-year-old vines deliver a big, bold, brooding Merlot with great ageability. Our most intense and concentrated Merlot, this rich Washington wine is loaded with plum, cherry and dark fruit flavors with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. An ideal growing season in 2009 allowed grapes to retain their natural acidity.
