The grapes for this Merlot blend were grown in the Red Mountain, Walla Walla and Horse Heaven Hills AVA’s areas in Washington state. These grapes were fermented on the “must” in Stainless steel tanks for up to 2 weeks with pump-overs carried out 2 times a day to insure full extraction of color and tannin. After the malolactic fermentation is complete the wine is pressed, settled, then transferred to French Oak barrels (27% new) to age for 18 months.
