Old field selection clones yield fruit with high natural acidity and citrus flavors like grapefruit and lemon. The nose shows lime, Meyer lemon, and ripe apple. Flavors of juicy green apple, dried fig, white peach, and apricot mingle with hints of vanilla. The dash of French oak pushes the finish a little longer with hints of vanilla and caramel. 89 Pts James Suckling BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99 2015 Drumheller Merlot Columbia Valley, Washington 80% Merlot, 20% Syrah This Merlot opens with aromas of blueberry, subtle spice and rose petals with hints of cocoa.

The full-bodied structure is a hallmark.

Intense, concentrated mature fruit, bold, but integrated tannins and beautifully balanced acidity extend to an elegant finish. 92 Pts SK, 4.2 Vivino BTG $10.50  Retail $26.99
