2021 Merlot Columbia Valley

92 Points

Tasting Notes

The 2021 vintage has concentrated aromas of black cherry, raspberry, mint, and cream that lead into flavors of dark chocolate, graham cracker, and cedar. The wine is lush and bright and was created to enjoy now, or for many years to come as it will age gracefully. Enjoy!

Food Pairings

Dry rubbed boneless pork ribs, prime rib with shiitake mushroom risotto, and herb roasted chicken and grilled spiced cauliflower.


82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon
The barrel regime included 100% French oak – 36% new.
0.50 g/100 mL
The wine was then racked into barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation. Racking occurred every three months during the 20-month aging process.
