2009 Merlot Columbia Valley

In 2009, a warm growing season provided for an early harvest that developed grapes to a perfect level of ripeness. The wine is 100% Merlot and blends a small percentage of our estate fruit with old vine grapes from Bacchus Vineyard. It is classic Washington State Merlot, a gentle giant that continues to display firm structure and lush, dense flavors of Bing cherry, dark plum, cocoa and spice.

Tasting Notes
"Lush and full across the palate, this utterly delicious wine marshals an army of pretty red and black fruit into a silky smooth flavor formation, then wraps them in a tapestry of floral, caramel, coconut, coffee and chocolate highlights." Wine Enthusiast, 94 Pts, Editor's Choice
