Pepper Bridge Merlot
WINE TYPE: Red
VARIETAL: 78% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 8% Malbec
COUNTRY: United States
APPELLATION: Walla Walla
This vintage brings sublet hints of deep plum, black cherry and savory notes. Tea leaves and pencil shavings usher in dusty notes with earthy undertones. Bright raspberries with darker threads of blueberries around the palate, followed by cherry pie, mocha and spice. A velvet mouthfeel and structured tannins make for a long, dark finish.
-Jean-Francois Pellet, Winemaker
