2010 Merlot

Columbia Valley

We craft this wine to be our complex yet approachable Merlot. The wine offers aromas of black cherry, leather and spice with layers of rich dark red fruit flavors and a long, smooth, sweet finish. Half of the fruit for the 2010 Merlot came from vineyards on the Wahluke Slope, known for producing fruit-forward Washington reds. The remainder was sourced from Canoe Ride Estate and Cold Creek vineyard. Rounding out the blend is fruit from vineyards on the Wahluke Slope, a warm region known for concentrated reds. A touch of Syrah adds a jammy fruit character. This Washington Merlot is a great ‘any day’ red wine.
