Pepper Bridge Merlot Walla Walla Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes : Dark ruby-colored, it has a pretty perfume of pain grille, cassis, and black cherry. On the palate the wine is supple and sweet with a lush texture and fine depth. This nicely balanced effort is drinking well now and should last for another 15 years.

The entry onto the palate is slightly austere. The... Robert Parker. A Merlot wine from Washington in USA. 2005 Pepper Bridge Winery Merlot 750ml
