Bouquet laced with strawberries, cherry cola, tobacco and espresso. A full, dense and muscular palate with a healthy dose of well-integrated tannins.

Winemaker Notes
The famed Champoux Vineyard is located in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, just north of the Columbia River along the Oregon border in southeastern Washington. The Merlot from Champoux is consistently one of our most sought-after wines. The 2011 is quite dark with a powerful bouquet laced with strawberries, cherry cola, tobacco and espresso. The palate is full, dense and muscular with a healthy dose of well- integrated tannins.

Production Notes
2011 dealt us an unusual hand of cards, hard to read for sure. March through May gave us our coolest spring in the last 20 years! Not extreme cold, just consistently cool weather. This was followed by cooler-than-normal temperatures in June and July. August was seasonally hot and dry followed by a warm September and a sunny October.
