The 2004 "Ode to Merriment" is a tribute to our Merriment, our Walla Walla Valley Proprietary blend. Due to the freeze, our Estate vineyard Pheasant Run Vineyards did not produce in 2004. Our goal was to find the very best fruit possible. This wine was aged for 20 months, 65% new french oak, 35% two year old barrels. It is aromatic and ripe with a rich and dense mouthfeel. Scents and flavors of cherries, plums, cedar and espresso. It finishes with long, silky tannins. This is a wine that will reward you for the next 8 to 10 years.
