Winemaker's Notes

This is a very complex, delightful Merlot from some of the oldest vines in the Walla Walla Valley. The 2006 vintage's low yields gave us somewhat fuller-bodied, concentrated wines than 2005; soft, but with polished structure. The abundant black and red fruits by nose and mouth are enchanting, with generous depth and length. The wine pairs well with a variety of foods. Our Merlot tends to age well into the 8-10 year range, under proper cellar conditions. This vintage is another excellent example of the qualities that have made Northwest Merlot such an enjoyable wine.

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 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.
