Columbia Merlot 2014
The deep purple color of our Columbia Merlot alludes to enticing aromas of rich, dark fruits and a subtle hint of Mocha. The majority of the grapes in this Merlot were sourced from the renowned Horse Heaven Hills AVA within the Columbia Valley. The intense sunlight and steep hillsides of this region produced fruit with complex, dark berry character. In the cellar, our disciplined oak regimen resulted in pronounced notes of toasted vanilla and dark chocolate. Balanced acidity complements the textured mouthfeel, leading into a bold, lingering finish.
