Heading towards old world characteristics with more restraint and structure. Well made. Fruit undefined but just ripened at moment. Fine finish. #merlot #lecole #washington #ctbucklinwine

Dark fruit solid tannins. Young and powerful.

This tastes like Rutherford merlot. Dust, dark fruit, tobacco, hint of vanilla. A great wine that I’m grateful for people dismissing because it says merlot.

A big merlot as always. Classic cocoa and dark fruit on the nose. A well built Washington merlot
