Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Grapes were destemmed and sorted using cutting edge technology to gently handle fruit and remove any green material, allowing for more pure, concentrated fruit expression. • Gentle pumpovers were used to extract optimal flavor and color and minimize harsh tannins. • Aged in 51% new American and French oak barrels.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) The Indian Wells Merlot offers ripe berry fruit aromas and jammy flavors typical of Wahluke Slope reds. This is a full bodied style of warm climate Merlot with a round, supple finish. We added Wahluke Slope syrah to enhance the mouthfeel and rich fruit character. I call this my pasta wine!
