RETIRED

2011 Merlot

The fruit for this wine was sourced mainly from Washington State’s Yakima Valley, with a small bit of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from California’s Sierra Foothills.

The wine exhibits classic Merlot aromas of bright cherry, blackberry and raspberry, with hints of vanilla, mocha and black pepper. In the mouth the wine is medium bodied with a rich yet delicate structure, balanced with sweet and lush tannins. Aged in mostly French oak barrels, the wine will continue to soften and gain complexity in the bottle with expected peak maturation in 2016.
