This 2005 Nelms Road Merlot was produced from grapes grown at younger vineyards, several declassified lots of wine and a significant amount of press wine. The continued program of declassification at Woodward Canyon in the vineyard and the winery has allowed them to create attractive and affordable red wines.

The vintage was another very warm one for Washington State and this Merlot reflects that. This wine offers beautifully ripe fruit with flavors of dried ripe cherries and subtle aromas of spice, cut leaf tobacco, mocha and vanilla. The texture is soft and silky and the finish is sweet, generous and long.

This red wine is meant for food and would be fantastic with pasta, fine cheese or cheeseburgers for that matter. While there is ample fruit to age this wine for several years, it has been produced to enjoy young. With proper storage, this wine should age for three to five years.
