2017 Merlot

Our 2017 Merlot is a full-bodied yet fruit-forward expression of Merlot grown in the Horse Heaven Hills region of Washington’s Columbia Valley. In addition to Merlot, the four remaining Bordeaux varietals—Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot also make their presence known here. Our Merlot is soft and ripe yet well-structured because of the tannins provided by the grapes grown in the very warm HHH AVA. Aromas of plums, cherry cobbler and vanilla are noticeable on the nose of this robust yet approachable merlot. This wine would be terrific to have with filet mignon, sausage lasagna, or rabbit stew.
