Winemaker Notes

Beautiful, deep ruby color. 2011 was the coolest vintage inthe Walla Walla Valley in 20 years. It was a winemakersvintage and one that will forever separate the "men fromthe boys." Everything had to be executed to perfection inthe vineyard, a feat in which we managed to accomplish.Merlot, being the earliest variety we have to ripen, was trulyat home in this vintage and produced a wine I can aptlydescribe as resembling the finest Right Bank Claret fromBordeaux. Such is its leaness, levity, and beauty. The nose isjust loaded with pure red and blue berries, along with floralnotes. Fantastic acid punctuates the lovely finish.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This is 100% varietal Merlot, aged 15 months in new and neutral French oak barrels and botti. It’s tangy, sleek and supple, with a spectrum of fruit from cranberry on through blackberry. Tannins are polished and mouth-coating, with substantial power. The finish brings hints of herbs and black olives. Cellar Selection.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Coming from the estate Loess, Seven Hills and Mill Creek Upland vineyards in Walla Walla, the 2011 Merlot is a superb, plush and yet gorgeously elegant and detailed effort that boasts knockout aromatics of spring flowers, black cherry, plum, licorice and dusty mineral on the nose. Already complex and approachable, it nevertheless has full-bodied richness on the palate, as well as a supple, mouth-filling texture, juicy acidity and no hard edges. Drink it over the coming decade. Drink now-2023.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Firm in texture, showing pepper and licorice flavors at first, followed by plum and currant fruit that fills in the taut frame. Needs time to soften and unfurl.
