This estate grown "Gravity" Merlot definitely deserves more than a Sideways glance, if you catch our drift. Washington State has consistently flipped the script on the idea that Merlot is a boring, outdated grape only to be found on the bottom shelf. For this grape to truly shine it requires warm sunny days with cool nights to help it reach full maturity while retaining a balanced acidity. Here in the Horse Heaven Hills, we have that. Deep ruby in color, the Gravity Merlot offers layers of fruity aromatics on the nose. Plum, black cherry, strawberry and a hint of blueberry jump from the glass while earthy notes of leather, tobacco, and clove add balance and complexity to the nose and show beautifully on the palate. Elegantly structured tannins complement the wines cleansing acidity, leading to a lengthy finish. Although ready to drink now, this wine shows potential for cellaring upwards of five years. Please decant. Enjoy!
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
During extreme weather during the Summer and Winter months we do recommend delaying shipments. We do not like to ship if the weather is above 85 degrees or below 32 degrees. To ensure the safety of your product we do recommend holding the shipment. We will hold in our temperature controlled facility until weather permits.
During Checkout you may Choose the Hold Until Safe and we will ship it once weather conditions are suitable
In this case, we will watch the weather closely and will remove the hold and ship your order as soon as conditions permit. The release dates will vary, and because there is no specified date for delivery, the warehouses will ship it as weather permits. If the Hold Until Safe option is released and your order is shipped, you will receive a shipping notice with the tracking number link.
