The Merlot grape is responsible for establishing Washington State as one of the preeminent growing regions for Bordeaux varieties the world over. It was also the initial and most influential variety in the founding of Revelry Vintners. Merlot is all about balance, silky smooth mouthfeel, and well rounded flavors, that when done right linger on and on. We source our Merlot across the Columbia Valley, finding sweet spots for the grape on consistent soft grades, with moderate heat and good air drainage. This is the sole recipient of American Oak barrels in our lineup of wines, as Merlot tends to be accepting of the big sweet flavors that those barrels impart from their firing. This wine is a crowd favorite.
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.
