Washington State has consistently flipped the script on the idea that Merlot is a boring, outdated grape only to be found on the bottom shelf. For this grape to truly shine it requires warm sunny days with cool nights to help it reach full maturity while retaining a balanced acidity. Here in the Horse Heaven Hills, we have that. Deep ruby in color, the 2019 Gravity offers layers of fruity and earthy aromatics. On the forefront, ripe strawberry is followed by notes of cherry, plum, and a rose petal. The fruitiness of this wine is complemented by notes of leather, espresso, and baking spice not only adding complexity to the nose but throughout the richly textured palate. An elegant tannin profile provides a velvety mouthfeel while cleansing acidity brings the wine to a lengthy finish. Please decant. Enjoy. Drink by 2023.
