Ripe and luscious black cherry and berry aromas are distinguished by an appealing leather, mocha, and tobacco complexity. Very bright, full and sweet ripe fruit flavors are balanced by solid tannins, concluding in a long and full finish.

The Indian Wells Merlot offers ripe berry fruit aromas and jammy flavors typical of Wahluke Slope reds. This is a full bodied style of warm climate Merlot with a round, supple finish.

This fresh, vibrant red features supple texture and well-defined cherry and currant flavors. Ripe, but remains clear and refreshing through the finish. Drink now through 2015. 104,000 cases made. -HS We craft this wine to be our complex yet approachable Merlot. The wine offers aromas of black cherry, leather and spice with layers of rich dark red fruit flavors and a long, smooth, sweet fi nish. A touch of Syrah adds a jammy fruit character. I think of this wine as a great "everyday red." - Bob Bertheau, Head WinemakerBlend:91% Merlot4% Syrah5% Blender varietals (Malbec, Mourvedre, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsaut, Grenache)Total acidity: 0.45g/100mlph: 3.84Alcohol: 13.5%

A balanced and complex blend of Washington state fruit intensity with an Old World style.

A deeper take on Merlot from this Columbia Valley producer, a basket of berries can be found in this bottle, from blackberry to blueberry with hints of black cherry and anise. Great depth of fruit and perfectly integrated spice gives California Merlot a run for the money. The lengthy, rich finish will be sure to bring you back for more.

Winemaker's Notes:

• Ripe grapes were destemmed and inoculated with various strains of yeast to maximize complexity. • Gentle pumpovers during fermentation were used to extract color and fl avor and produce soft, supple tannins. • Aged 15 months in French and American oak, 31% new.
