Merlot 2012

The grapes for this wine were sourced from select vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley in Washington State. The diverse microclimates present in this area produce a beautifully crafted Merlot.

Tasting Notes

Pure expression of ripe red and black cherry fruit, distinct chocolate and caramel notes with a hint of pomegranate. A rich, balanced style with a smooth tannic structure.

Food Pairing

This versatile wine can be paired with everything from a cured meat and cheese picnic, to grilled sausage or beef tenderloin. Pairs equally well with roast pork or medium-spiced Asian dishes.
