Past & Present Mule Skinner Set
This 100% Walla Walla Valley merlot is named for Frederick Corkrum’s job as the ranch’s head Mule Skinner, the person who cared for and drove the mules in all aspects of the farming operation.
Includes two bottles each of the following:
2012 Mule Skinner Merlot
This wine has a very seductive terroir-driven nose of fresh thyme and wheat. On the palate, the wine is vibrant and rich with plenty of red summer berries (cherry, raspberry, strawberry and cassis) and a hint of ripe peach. The finish is velvety and juicy with nice acidity.
2018 Mule Skinner Merlot
This wine comes entirely from the old blocks of Merlot planted in 1995. It has a rich texture, lots of complexity and focused on ripe fruit.
