Winemaker's Notes:

Densely packed, luscious flavors of ripe raspberries, currants, and Italian plums explode in the palate of our 2007 Merlot. Hints of cinnamon and flower petals mingle with touches of dark chocolate. Rich, layered and concentrated, this plush Merlot finishes with a core of dark red fruits and a long, persistent, velvety texture.
My Notes:

About Pepper Bridge Winery:

Pepper Bridge focuses on making elegant, balanced wines from sustainably farmed Walla Walla Valley estate vineyards. These vineyards, Pepper Bridge and Seven Hills, are recognized as two of the best — not only in the appellation — but also in the state.

As farmers, the Pepper Bridge crew spends quite a bit of time talking about their vineyards. However, there is much to say about the wines and winery as well. Pepper Bridge Winery remains family-owned and true to its own sense of winemaking style.
