Waterbrook Merlot 2018
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
"One of Walla Walla's founding wineries, pulls it name for Running Water. This Merlot takes the positive welcoming aromas and flavors of sweet black cherry, dark chocolate and spice; balancing both for a smooth finish and hint of mint. True varietal and terroir representation."
Sweet, floral aromas of honey suckle and cherry blossom lead to flavors of dried apple, boysenberry and cedar. Medium bodied with soft, well-rounded tannins and flavors of fresh tobacco. homemade apple sauce and berry cobbler on the finish.
A spunky, user-friendly red, with black cherry and toasty spice flavors that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 3,843 cases made.
The aromas are reserved, with notes of vanilla, nougat and cherry. Plump raspberry and fruit leather flavors that dip in the middle, creating a doughnut hole, flesh it out. The warmth of the vintage carries it away at times, but there is still plenty of enjoyment and value to be had.
