Coming from the estate Loess, Seven Hills and Mill Creek Upland vineyards in Walla Walla, the 2011 Merlot is a superb, plush and yet gorgeously elegant and detailed effort that boasts knockout aromatics of spring flowers, black cherry, plum, licorice and dusty mineral on the nose. Already complex and approachable, it nevertheless has full-bodied richness on the palate, as well as a supple, mouth-filling texture, juicy acidity and no hard edges. Drink it over the coming decade. Drink now-2023."
Beautiful, deep ruby color. 2011 was the coolest vintage in
the Walla Walla Valley in 20 years. It was a winemakers
vintage and one that will forever separate the "men from
the boys." Everything had to be executed to perfection in
the vineyard, a feat in which we managed to accomplish.
Merlot, being the earliest variety we have to ripen, was truly
at home in this vintage and produced a wine I can aptly
describe as resembling the finest Right Bank Claret from
Bordeaux. Such is its leaness, levity, and beauty. The nose is
just loaded with pure red and blueberries, along with floral
notes. Fantastic acid punctuates the lovely finish.
