2012 Wild Child Merlot Wahluke Slope

100% Merlot from Stone Tree Vineyards - Wahluke Slope

Tasting notes

Wild aromas of blackberry and cassis packed in a cedar chest. A smooth silky pack- age of Plum, black cherry and sticky blackberry lasts on the palate. Bright fleshy cherry, vanilla and spice on the forever finish. This merlot will age gracefully through 2019.
