BACKGROUND

Father/daughter winemaking team, Mike and Natalie, love their red wine repertoire. Merlot is one red wine that Latah Creek has made since its beginnings. This undervalued wine is always one to impress; full of fruit flavors and subtle tannins.

WINEMAKING

This 2015 Merlot comes from a picture perfect vineyard in the middle of an amazing appellation. With a southern facing slope, growing conditions here are near ideal. Because of this, very little input from the winemaker is needed - the wine almost makes itself. Other than encouraging a full malolactic fermentation, no other fining or additions were done. The wine was finished with nearly 18 months in oak before bottling.

TASTING NOTES

This dark, inky red wine gently graces your nose with aromas of toasted vanilla, chocolate, and sweet orals. Smooth, velvety tannins mingled with blackberry, cassis, and toast engulf your mouth, while dried plum and tobacco linger on.

FOOD PAIRING

This wine provides an ideal accompaniment to beef, chicken, and pasta such as Ellena’s Fettuccine with Sautéed Mushrooms recipe in her latest cookbook, available at the winery.
