If Pinot Noir and Merlot had a love child...this would be it. Light like a Pinot, juicy like a Merlot. Plummy, cherry coke, and mocha, with a whiff of greenery. A nice Merlot for non-Merlot fans.

Medium crimson. Fruit forward plum and ripe, fresh fig, cherry cola, and a hint of vanilla bean but otherwise no overt oak. Medium body, smooth texture, medium acid lends tartness, low astringency, high alcohol 13.5% warms the palate and throat. Good fireside/après ski wine. Muted fruit on the medium finish, tart cranberry, hint of cocoa powder, mushroom, a noted bitterness. Alcohol lingers beyond the fruit. Interesting www.scorevolution.com

Really nice. Not overpowering tannins, lots of fruit notes. Great fruit-forward wine from Washington. Delish!

Made from purchased fruit from Bacchus vineyard red plum and cherry fruit with milk chocolate and fine herbs. Smooth and velvety texture with nice freshness. Notes of tobacco spice and milk chocolate. Finish 35+ very good

A good classic merlot with steely tannins good grip and bramble fruit overshadowed by a very boozy alcoholic taste
