The wine offers aromas of black plum with enticing notes of vanilla and spice. The fruit is intense with exceptional color and freshness. On the palate, it is velvety with excellent acidity and a long-lasting finish. Classic dark berry and plum flavors expected in Merlot persist with a slightly higher acidity than it’s warmer Californian cousins. This Merlot shows a propensity for balance better than most. A slight hint of vanilla, with a solid backbone of structure, makes this a perfect reconnection with Washington State’s unsung Merlot expressions.
