Woodward Canyon Merlot 2015, Nelms Road, Walla Walla Valley
The very warm 2015 vintage gave beautifully ripe yet balanced fruit with deep flavors of black cherry, herb and baking spice. Complex aromas of roasted meat, black olive and tobacco integrate, leading to a soft generous finish. The wine is dark purple in color and though it was bottled early to retain fruit, is quite enjoyable now. This merlot will improve substantially with additional time in bottle and with proper storage should age well for five years or more.
