This wine is a blend of fruit from four vineyards including estate vineyards Anna Marie, Dugger Creek and McClellan which are located in the southern end of the Walla Walla Valley. Anna Marie offers dark fruit aromas, firm structure, cassis and notes of cocoa, while Dugger Creek lends red fruit aromas, rose petal and refined tannins. Rounding out this elegant wine is McClellan with blackberry fruit, along with umami soy-like aromas and flavors. The Merlot from Seven Hills contributes spicy red plum note to the blend. The 2014 vintage was one of the warmest in Washington history with great concentration of rich, ripe flavors due to ideal growing conditions throughout the vintage. Enjoy!
