    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Traditions Merlot features grapes from a number of our estate vineyards in Eastern Washington's Wahluke Slope. Established in 2006, the Wahluke Slope is a sub-region within the Columbia Valley appellation. Located midway between Seattle and Spokane it is bordered by the Columbia River to the southwest and Hanford Reach National Monument to the east. The climate here is warm enough during the day to fully ripen grapes, yet cool enough at night to ensure bright acids and firm tannins.

    The 2008 Traditions Merlot is elegant, balanced and approachable. The nose is bright and forward with cherries, berries and plums wrapped in crème brulée and brown sugar. The flavors are a seamless blend of fruit, oak and acidity.

    Blend: 78% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec & 1% Barbera.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Smooth and round, brimming with cherry and tobacco flavors, a savory edge adding depth to the open-textured freshness. Drink now through 2014.
