Tasting Notes: Coming from an iconic vineyard in Yakima Valley, planted in the early 1980’s. This wine has that classic Washington Merlot quality that the state varietal was founded upon! Nose of dried pie cherry, gorgeous & smooth, rounded mouth feel. A lasting finish invoking spice, vanilla, wood accents and coffee. Slight tannin. A beautiful Merlot we are quite proud of!
Food pairing: Red sauced pasta dishes, pizza, or bbq meats or vegetables.
