The Indian Wells Merlot offers ripe berry fruit aromas and jammy flavors. This is a full-bodied style of warm climate Merlot with a round, supple finish. We added Wahluke Slope Syrah to enhance the mouthfeel and rich fruit character. Pairs well with hearty pastas, arroz con pollo, flank steak salad, basil, oregano.

Lively, with zesty fruit, offering appealing black currant, espresso and spice flavors that finish with refined tannins. Drink now through 2023. 100,000 cases made.

The aromas come out of the gate lightly reduced, followed by notes of graphite, blackberry jam, plum and spice. The palate brings a pretty sense of styling, with the concentration light in the middle, but otherwise delivering a sense of appeal.
