2012 Mule Skinner Merlot

Walla Walla Valley

This 100% Estate-grown Merlot 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.
