Beautiful violet color out to a pink rim. Loads of red plum aromas with some toast and vanilla. Tastes of black berry fruit and coffee. Soft tannins and a nice lingering finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our winemakers crafted this Merlot to reflect the pure, expressive flavors found in the Dry Creek Valley, where warm days, cool nights and well-draining soils that characterize this appellation make this region renowned for its terroir. The grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, to retain a significant portion of whole berries for fermentation. This technique enhanced the intensity of the dark fruit flavors in this Merlot. After fermentation, 100% of the wine completed malolactic fermentation to soften the acids and add layers of complexity.

Tasting Notes:

Our 2007 Dry Creek Merlot captures the rich, ripe flavors of the Dry Creek Valley. It is a medium-bodied wine with intense flavors of blackberry and cherry, underscored by hints of spice from barrel aging.
