- Aromas: Baked strawberry, black prune, cocoa, tobacco, coffee, toasted hazelnut, coconut, and vanilla.
- Flavors/experience: Dry. Medium-high acidity. Medium-full bodied. Red plum and tart blackberry. Velvety tannin. A lingering finish with notes of pepper and anise.
- Specifications: 100% Wahluke Slope Merlot. Its flavor profile is reminiscent of a Right Bank Bordeaux (lighter in body, more acidic) than most Northwest (or New World) Merlots. Allow to breathe 20-30 minutes before serving. This is a big wine, trapped inside a genie bottle. It needs time to breathe and stretch out!
- AVA: Wahluke Slope, Washington
