Winemaker's Notes:

Deep garnet color leads to inviting aromatics of blueberry, currant and cedar. Big, rich, ripe fruit develops throughout the palate. Structured tannins and balanced acidity supports lingering fruit on the well rounded finish.

33% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Syrah, 11% Malbec, 7% Sangiovese, 11% other varieties.

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.
