    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aromas of black cherry and black current are balanced with oak, spice, nutmeg, and vanilla. Bright fruit flavors dominate in the mouth with a lively acidity and moderate but smooth tannins. This Merlot is complex and layered and displays the intensity that can be developed in Washington State. While soft and approachable for near-term enjoyment, the subtle structural tannins and acid backbone give this wine excellent potential for aging. It is a splendid match for rich meats, dark red pasta sauces, smoked grilled salmon and is beautifully matched with Cajun or spicy oriental foods!

    "A river of red cherry opours out of the blacker, plum skin tannins, giving a wine that's concentrated, smooth and rich. It has a shine and trasparent elegance that raise it a notch above grapey and simple. And it has that full textural warmth that makes merlot a pleasure to drink."
