Winemaker's Notes:

Aromatic ripe berries and spice marry with light cedar notes. A well rounded palate of black cherry and cigar box leads to lingering toasted oak on the finish.

About Waterbrook:

Waterbrook Winery was founded in 1984 by Eric and Janet Rindal and is located in Washington State's lovely Walla Walla Valley. The name was chosen to complement the translation from Nez Perce Indian dialect for the name Walla Walla, meaning "running water." Production has slowly increased to over 35,000 cases annually.
