This Columbia Valley Merlot displays a brilliant deep dark color and classic flavors and aromas of blueberry, chocolate and ripe plum. Its rich, silky texture adds layers of complexity and balance. Hints of earthiness and dark fruit character contribute to a long-lasting finish. Sourced primarily from The Benches Vineyard, this wine is vibrant and intense with added depth from the Petit Verdot. Aged 18 months in 70% neutral, 30% new oak barrels.
