This vintage of perfect ripening weather gave us a forward wine, with softer tannins and an abundant berry fruit component. Has potential for integration and improvement with age over the next 1 to 3 years.
New heavy toast Bossuet & Saury French oak lends an elegant finish to this wine. A classic Northwest Merlot. Deep black/purple color. Black cherry and raspberry fruit aromas are matched with an elegant French oak component. By mouth the wine is open, soft and forward with restrained acidity. Polished, lasting finish.
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
