Tasting Notes
This elegant Walla Walla merlot is extremely concentrated with flavors of chocolate and spice. Velvety, currant, cocoa-espresso flavors reveal lush black currant and plum, while mingling in exotic brown spice. The wine is supple and polished, finishing with an offering of dried cherry gently dipped in chocolate.

“Chocolate and spice and everything nice!”
