FULL DESCRIPTION

With a round profile and a dense, saturated mid palate, this is a Merlot with a great deal of scale.  The flavor profile is a beautiful sort of compote of fresh Blackberries, Marion berry, and Blueberry over roasted Vanilla meringue.  This wine will age incredibly well for 10 yrs and beyond.

Side Note: It was Merlot that directly inspired the beginnings of Revelry Vintners.  The singular wine that sparked an interest, which lead to a passion, that spiraled into a company was a 1998 Merlot from the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. That wine set the bar for quality way back then - that standard persists today.
