Tasting Notes
Ahh… this wine will take you on a stroll through the Walla Walla Farmer’s Market on a damp late Spring morning. Here you encounter aromas of clean herbs like tarragon, basil, and parsley, juicy summer fruits in their wooden crates, and peppery arugula next to bouquets of just-blooming lillies. Take a sip and imagine yourself at the foothills of the Blue Mountains, the sun bright and the slight breeze carrying a hint of damp evergreen. Enjoy a picnic with your best friends of ripe Klicker strawberries, tart apricots, and fresh fruit tarts filled with gobs of cognac-laced pastry cream and garnished with sprigs of spearmint as you enjoy the view, the company, and your 2007 Helix Merlot.
