Winemaker's Notes:

Known as the top producer of Merlot in the United States, Washington offerings boast deep concentrated berry flavors, firm structure and supple finishes.

Plum blossoms and soft talc make for a pleasant nose backed up by cinnamon, date and fig flavors, appearing modestly amongst juicy ripe black cherry and boysenberry gliding into a seamless 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.
