This merlot is fragrant and very lively, the herbal freshness, crisp tannins and bright acidity making it very food friendly. Good length, too. Drink or hold.
The 2016 Merlot checks in as a blend of 78% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, and 3% each of Malbec and Petit Verdot. It's a charmer from this team that has loads of fruit and richness as well as balance, and offers lovely dark fruits and leafy herb aromas and flavors. With no hard edges and a great finish, it's a smoking value to drink over the coming 7-8 years.
Leading with textbook Walla Walla tobacco-tin scents, this wine has a bright core of cherry and plum flavor—a hallmark of Seven Hills vineyard, where half of this fruit was sourced; the other half came from Ferguson, which may account for the wine’s firm tannins. It has the stuffing to lay down; or decant it now for steak.
