2014 WALLA WALLA VALLEY MERLOT
2014 WALLA WALLA VALLEY MERLOT

The attention-getting nose of cedar, oak and violet jumps from the glass and takes you to a sweet espresso  beginning, a thick middle of wild huckleberry jam and a finish that dances with flavors of caramel, mocha, leather and fresh black Mission fig.

AVAs Sourced: Walla Walla Valley

Vintage Notes: At the time this was the hottest vintage on record, with Growing Degree Days at 25% above average.  It stayed hot and dry well into the fall, creating a compacted harvest that began ten days ahead of schedule and finish two weeks early.  Hot summer days reduced berry size and lead to wines with intense flavor and depth. This is a year for big, powerhouse wines. Enjoy!
