In 1917, C. L. Lawson built the home at Indian Creek Winery for Charles L. & Pinkie J. Elzea. A 1967 description of the house in the Monroe City News reads as follows: "The main floor has a large living room with fireplace, a dining room, office, a combination kitchen-breakfast room, and a full bath. The kitchen cabinets are Early American, while the breakfast room has a built-in storage wall with louvered doors. The living and dining rooms, office, and stairway are carpeted. The floors of the front entrance, kitchen-breakfast room, and bath are covered with torginol. The upstairs has five bedrooms, a sun porch, and combination bath and dressing room. Each bedroom contains a walk-in closet. A linen closet and clothes chute located off the hallway were added where a back stairway was torn out. The hallway and three bedrooms are paneled and carpeted. The basement contains a large family room, a bedroom, shoer, laundry, and storage rooms. The family room is paneled and has a built-in barbecue pit. The floors are covered with torginol. A steam central heating system was installed throughout." Mr. & Mrs. Elzea raised Oxford sheep and lillies on the 220 acre farm surrounding the house. Charles died in 1963 at 100 years of age and his wife, Pinkie, died in 1965. Read less

This Merlot is a product of a great growing season in southwest Idaho. We had long warm days and cool nights well through harvest. An earthy & fruity nose followed by a complex body filled with flavors of black cherry, black pepper, red plum and smoky pine.
