WALLA WALLA VINTNERS Merlot, Walla Walla Valley 2020

A gorgeous shimmering ruby core with a neon pink rim, the 2020 Merlot is a standout. Resting for 18 months in 40% new French oak and 15% new American oak, you do get some of that dried dill and coconut aspect to the wine on the nose. The palate is all freshly picked macerated red cherry, with additional notes of spiced red plum, mountain sagebrush, and a hint of toasted anise seed. Just 750 cases made.
