Winemaker's Notes:

#46 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

Seductive aromas of brandied black cherries, mint, tar and charcoal swirl on the nose. A merriment of smoky and dusty notes welcome you to the palate. Black walnut notes with a hint of molasses leads to lingering 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.
