About the Wine:

LUKE Merlot reveals the hallmarks of great Washington Merlot – dark red fruits, rounded tannins and an opulent, smooth finish.  Fresh flavors of plum, cherry and blackberry dominate the mid-palate while earthy flavors of tobacco, cedar and clove marry the spices of vanilla and mocha to extend the wine’s long lingering finish.

Wahluke Slope AVA, Columbia Valley.

Vineyards: Stone Tree, Weinbau

Varietals: 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points & Editors' Choice - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
Weinbau fruit makes up the backbone of this wine. The aromas pull you into the glass, with notes of blue plum, raspberry, vanilla, graphite and coffee. The palate is full feeling, with lush fruit flavors and sneaky structure behind them. There's a pleasing lick of acidity that ups the interest. It's a big mouthful of a wine that overdelivers. Decant to see it at its best. 

91 Points & #69 Top 100 Wines of 2022 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
Vibrant and elegantly structured, this Merlot is accented by sleek red currant, toasty spice and hints of dusty herb. Drink now through 2027. 3,650 cases made. —TF
