    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our Foreshadow Merlot showcases our best Merlot vineyards in the Columbia Valley and Red Mountain appellations. The wine shows classic Merlot varietal characters and exhibits aromas of spice and subtle dried herbs, black olive, bright red to slightly dark fruit with finishing scents of vanilla and sandalwood. The wine enters the palate sweet, has a medium plus weight in the mid palate and exhibits flavors of baker's chocolate, black cherries, cola and anise. The wine finishes with beautifully integrated fine-grained tannins and firm acidity. Given the nature of this wine's concentrated dark fruit core, tannin structure and acidity, I would recommend cellaring before near term consumption. Optimal cellaring for this merlot is in the 5–8 year range, however it will certainly age longer with proper care.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Supple and layered, this nicely captures the scope and scale of this superb vintage. It’s still young, tight and quite compact, but shows threads of tobacco, anise, stone and pencil lead, along with full, fleshy, plum and cassis fruit. Great structure and dense, ripe tannins. This is a perfect illustration of why Washington Merlot can claim to be the best in the world outside of Pomerol.
