Merriment 2015

Columbia Valley

WINEMAKER NOTES

The intriguing nose shows expressive nuances of bright jammy fruits, herbal characteristics, hints of smoke, cured meat and tobacco. Subtle floral notes and hints of perfume are also present, and creates a beautiful accent on the bouquet.
The pleasing palate will reveal the fine integration between berry fruits and savory tones, lingering well through out the finish, making it complex and balanced. Ample tannin and balanced acidity adds structure, making this a great food wine. Our Merriment will be the highlight of your day, but will be even more special when paired with dishes such as ox tail, shepherd’s pie or a pear, bacon and blue cheese croissant. Cheers!
