DARK ARTS COLUMBIA VALLEY 2012

Dark and brooding yet juicy and pleasurable, the strength and depth of Conner Lee Vineyard Merlot combines with the intense fruit of Two Blondes Vineyard Malbec in this inspired blend. Huge blue and blackberry flavors with a solid backbone of smooth tannin balance the seamless and broad core of fruit. A modest use of 40% new French oak brings notes of pie crust and baking spice that rounds off this fabulous expression of Washington State Merlot.
