Merlot Red Willow
About the Vineyard
Located in the northwest
corner of the Yakima Valley, Red Willow is one of the oldest and most
celebrated vineyards in Washington. The vines are planted on steep
hillsides with unique soil formations unlike any other in the state.
The region’s warm and sunny
days allow the grapes to ripen fully and cool nights keep the fruit acids
high, creating flavorful and well-balanced wines.
Aromas of ripe blackberries,
boysenberries and fruit leather. Full bodied with moderate tannins and
acidity. Complex finish with flavors of sweet plums, dried black cherries
Food & Wine Pairing
Our 2007 Merlot would pair
well with dishes like spicy barbecue rib-eye steaks with smoked vegetable
salsa or lasagna with roasted red pepper and tomato sauce.
