BACKGROUND

This is the first vintage where Mike and Natalie have blended two Merlots together.

60% Merlot, Columbia Valley
35% Merlot, Ancient Lakes of Columbia Valley
5% Malbec, Ancient Lakes of Columbia Valley

 

WINEMAKING

Mike and Natalie create wines that allow the varietal characteristics to shine, producing a fruit-forward and balanced wine.  The wine went through a secondary fermentation, increasing its smooth mouthfeel, and 12 months in a combination of French and American oak to soften the edges. s.

TASTING NOTES

The lushness of this deeply colored wine is immediate. The nose gently graces you with plum, cassis, and toasty oak nuances. Smooth velvety tannins laced with cigar tobacco, and toasty oak flavors take over your mouth and remain long after the wine is swallowed. A balanced acidity keeps this wine light, fresh, and enjoyable everyday.

FOOD PAIRING

Enjoy this wine with meats, grilled vegetables, and hearty red sauce pastas, such as Ellena’s Fabulous Spaghetti Sauce recipe in her latest cookbook.
