Winemaker's Notes

The Indian Wells Merlot offers ripe black fruit aromas and jammy flavors typical of Wahluke Slope reds. This is a full-bodied style of warm climate Merlot with a round, soft finish. We added Wahluke Slope Syrah to enhance the mouthfeel and jammy fruit character.

Pairs well with foods like arroz con pollo, hearty pastas, flank steak salad and herbs such as basil and oregano.
