Brilliant color and a delicate bouquet of blueberries and nutmeg spice lead to a vibrant mouthfeel that evolves beautifully with flavors of Bing cherries, mocha, cassis and earthy notes. The wine’s backbone marries well with its richness and depth to provide balance reminiscent of a right bank Bordeaux. Half of the Merlot component is from the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, providing this wine with its silky tannins, and from the Walla Walla AVA for its richness. The Cabernet Franc from the Weinbau Vineyard provides elegance and balance.
