This fruit-forward Columbia Valley Merlot offers classic flavors and aromas of black cherry, chocolate and bramble fruits. Rich tannins support the mid palate which is chock-full of spice and floral components from the Cabernet Franc. Sourced primarily from Candy Mountain Vineyard, this wine has bright acidity and structure that gives this Merlot a punch above its weight class. Aged 18 months in 70% neutral, 30% new oak barrels.
