Winemaker Notes
These Merlot grapes were grown in Washington state's Red Mountain, Walla Walla, and Horse Heaven Hills AVAs. The grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 2 weeks. Juice pump-overs were carried out twice a day to insure full extraction of color and flavor. After malolactic fermentation was complete, the wine was pressed and racked to French Oak barrels (27% new) for 18 months of maturation.
