The Willamette Valley, Oregon’s leading wine region, has over two-thirds of the state’s wineries and vineyards. It was named the 2016 Wine Region of the Year award by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Lush vineyards and farms are tended by families who are passionate about growing the best wine grapes and freshest foods.
Aromas of bright red cherries and berries are supported by sweet spice and spring blossoms, mostly violets. Red cherry, red plum, and red raspberry flavors precede baking spice and cocoa. The acidity is fresh and lively, promising several years of pleasurable drinking. This is an excellent example of how elegant a California Merlot can be.
