Walla Walla Vintners Merlot
A beautiful Walla Walla Merlot, replete with black fruit and cocoa aromas. The palate is lush and velvety, with pleasant acidity leading to a long, spice-dusted, blackberry finish.
"The 2020 Walla Walla Vintners ‘Walla Walla Valley’ Merlot is sourced from their estate vineyard as well as the Seven Hills, Summit View, and Pepper Bridge vineyards. The wine is very elegant and soft upon entry. Bright acidity and soft tannins hold together a core of cocoa powder-dusted black cherry, tobacco leaf, and loganberry preserves. This shows very good flavor density considering the coolness of the vintage. Drink 2022-2032"- 92 Points Owen Bargreen
"A gorgeous shimmering ruby core with a neon pink rim, the 2020 Merlot is a standout. Resting for 18 months in 40% new French oak and 15% new American oak, you do get some of that dried dill and coconut aspect to the wine on the nose. The palate is all freshly picked macerated red cherry, with additional notes of spiced red plum, mountain sagebrush, and a hint of toasted anise seed." 92 Points International Wine Report
