Estate Merlot 2010

Walla Walla Valley, Washington

WINEMAKER NOTES

This wine displays aromas of strawberry, blackberry, & black cherry fruit upfront with notes of pipe tobacco, cigar box and bruleed sugar in the back finishing with a memorable smell of autumn leaves and rich dried fruits.

On the palate, a flavorful expression of pomegranate, plum and licorice are woven together with strong but silky tannins balanced with a bright and juicy acidity. The finish is long and generous leaving the palate with flavors of juicy red fruit and mocha.
