Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit for this Merlot bottling is selected from several premium sites and sub appellations of the Columbia Valley making it a true expression of Washington State Merlot. The wine has beautiful balance with great color and structure. Aromas of blackberry and ripe, red fruits with a delicate oak notes open the wine. On the palate abundant, warm fruit, toffee and baking spice flow into the lingering yet vibrant finish. This wine is delicious upon release and will continue to drink well 2 -4 years from vintage date.

About Seven Hills Winery:

Seven Hills Winery was established in 1988 to vinify some of the nation's finest wine grapes: those grown in the Walla Walla Valley Appellation. In 1989 we moved to our current facility in Milton-Freewater, on the southern edge of the Appellation. Our winemaking process is a customized, hand-crafted approach that follows the grape from vineyard, through fermentation, aging and bottling, into the marketplace. Our central focus is dedication to providing a memorable wine drinking experience. Limited production may make our wine more difficult to find but always worth the search.
