2012 SONAS MERLOT
Our first wine blended by new wine maker Scott Greer. This beautiful ruby red Merlot has smoky cured meat on the nose and a bright cherry mid pallet. Transitioning into darker fruits, black currant and blackberry with nice acidity. The finish is a combination of gripping tannins and smoke that lingers on the tongue. 2012 is a great vintage the weather conditions were superb and it shows in this nicely balanced, vibrant Washington Merlot.
