proper Cellaring recommendations
Our Merlot is made to age for 15 - 25 years in your cellar. Of course, there are some vintage-to-vintage variations to this recommendation. Wine should be stored horizontally at 55 - 57 degrees.

This impressively dark merlot has an amazingly pure nose of exotic floral aromas, perfectly ripe red and black fruits, crème cassis and vanilla cream, smoke, and violets. It had great fat and depth as it spreads across the palate. Representative of the vintage, it is perfectly balanced with precision acidity, seamless tannin, and a sweet long finish. We feel this wine is the epitome of Washington’s finest Merlot’s. Enjoy for the next 15+ years.
