Walla Walla winemaker Bill Murray provides another example of the quality of fruit from the Horse Heaven Hills with this product from Block 12, one of Canoe Ridge Vineyard’s oldest plantings of Merlot. Inviting aromas of blackberry, ripe plum and Van cherry include Baker’s chocolate, cigar tobacco and chalkboard dust. The pour brings a smooth entry of dark plum, red currant, chokecherry and Graham cracker with bright acidity and frontal tannins. Its finish offers notes of minerality and milk chocolate.
