Our 2019 Merlot is a full bodied, day bright red garnet and features expansive aromas of underripe Italian plum, baked berry slump and satsuma with notes of graphite, cinnamon and anise.
On the palate find flavors of black cherry, ripe plum with notes of vanilla and cocoa. The tannins are smooth and the moderate acidity is food friendly. The savory and earthy finish offers lingering flavors of black cherry, apple peel and a touch of minerality.
Bronze (2022 Sunset Intl Wine Comp)
Half the grapes in this wine came from Seven Hills Vineyard in the famed Rocks District in Walla Walla, the other half were grown by our friends at FireThorn Vineyard just south of the Columbia River. Aged in a nice diversity of French oak made by three different coopers, we feel we crafted a well-rounded Merlot that brings out what's good about Merlot – supple round fruit – while still featuring structured tannins and a pleasing depth of flavor.
