For decades, winemakers have sought out the beautifully proportioned and expressive Merlot from the Yakima Valley. The search is relentless due to the unique expression of this grape captured in warm layers of black cherry fruit, floral spice aromas, soft tannins and earth tones. Our Merlot is a blend of four great vineyards from the Yakima and Red Mountain AVAs. These plots span the four compass points of the viticultural region showcasing Red Willow, DuBrul, Klipsun and Upchurch. Blending fruit from these celebrated vineyards adds complexity; yet the charm and purity of the region’s Merlot remains the central focus of this wine.
Red Willow Malbec:
The signature characteristics of Malbec are unmistakable. Whether used as one of the five grapes found in the classic blends of Bordeaux or grown in the high elevation of the Andes Mountains in Argentina, Malbec always exhibits assertive leafy black fruits, blueberries and plum characters with firm, ripe tannins. The magenta hue around the glass rim gives another clue to its identity and no other grape benefits more from the dramatic swing between day and night temperatures (diurnal shift). Here in Washington State, this holds especially true at the renowned Red Willow vineyard in the remote western corner of the Yakima Valley AVA.
