Tasting Notes

The deep crimson color in the glass foretells the notes of plum, blueberry, strawberry and violets that prick the nose and please the palate. The bright red fruit flavors and quenching acidity up front are followed by fine grain tannins with hints of espresso and chocolate on the mid-palate. The finish features lengthy tannins that bring out earthen tones of cigar, cassis and forest floor.

Vineyard Notes

Located in the Wahluke Slope sub-AVA of the greater Columbia Valley AVA, Weinbau's south-facing alluvial slope consists of perfectly draining soils. The vineyard experiences moderate temperatures that help elongate hang time with ideal ripening conditions. The Kennewick silt loam soils consistently impart distinct Merlot characteristics like blackberry, cocoa and ripe plum.

Winemaker Notes

The fruit was cold soaked for 48 hours with daily pump overs, then fermented in a stainless steel open top tank with twice daily punch downs. Aged 27 months in French oak, 29% new.
