$39.65 Regular

in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case




Washington Merlot at its peak. A ribbon of bright red fruit pairs with black cherry kirsch, plum, dark chocolate, licorice, and a tiny hint of green peppercorns. There's a fascinating sweet earthiness that we couldn't name right away, then bingo: candy cap mushrooms. They are one of nature's tastiest items... A mere 48 cases were made, from Klipsun Vineyard.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

In 2006 we had to “Release the Fervor*” with our Merlot. This year, we are causing “The Revelation” with it! Straight out of the Klipsun vineyard, this 48 case production is the reason we like Merlot to be on its own. It might be one of the finest Merlot’s from Klipsun. There is plush cassis, dark cherries in wine, but what is remarkable is the level of elegance and grace compared to most Klipsun or Red Mountain fruit. It will not overpower you with tannins, oak and fruit, instead it will coat your mouth and leave you asking for more! 50% New French Oak.*Name of last year’s wine. - the winery

Merlot. What makes people think this isn't one of the best grapes to grace our planet? People close your eyes and drink Merlot. You'll find out that you like it, when made properly. Chateau Petrus, one of the world's most expensive bottles...made out of Merlot. So why are you afraid of the things that will make you happy? 100% Merlot from Klipsun Vineyard. It's aged 24 months in 50% new French oak and then screams on out the door...only 48 cases made....get some! - the winery
