Columbia Valley, USA
Layered with complex aromas of black cherry, rose petal, and plum, this full bodied, balanced Merlot shows layers of baking spices and cocoa with a seamless finish carried by fine-grained tannins.
Over 35 years of meticulous vineyard management and winemaking experience are
fundamental to the quality of our wines and reputation for excellence. We are engaged in growing and making 100% of our wines. Each lot was hand harvested ripe and gently crushed into 1.5 and 5 ton stainless steel fermenters. Gentle handling of the fruit through hand punch downs and gravity assisted movements were utilized throughout the entire winemaking process. The wine was cleanly racked to small oak barrels, 30% new, with four rackings over 18 months.
