We craft this wine to be our complex yet approachable Merlot. The wine off ers
aromas of black cherry, leather and spice with layers of rich dark red fruit and
cola flavors. Think of this inviting wine as a great "everyday red".
Serve with beef, lamb, grilled salmon, hearty pastas.
Varietal Blend: 89% Merlot, 8% Syrah, 3% Malbec.
"This shows the best aspects of the wonderful Washington '07s -- energy, elegant fruit, persistence -- adorned by a little bit of bottle age. It has taken on notes of carob, creosote and cedar, and it is those earthy, savory elemtes that give the wine tremendous complexity for the price. For a lean cut of meat, like a skirt steak."

Very nice Merlot. Good nose and drinkable right after uncorking. Lives up to its rating.
