Passing Time Winery

2021 Merlot 



This wine is quite pretty on the nose, with sun-baked plums, wild strawberry, tarragon, Castelvetrano olive, and milk chocolate. Plush on the palate, with black cherry, plum reduction, warm clay, bay leaf, and bittersweet chocolate. This wine is showing great now, and should improve for the next few years in the cellar.

Blend: 100% Merlot

Appellation: Horse Heaven Hills 

Vineyard: 100% Champoux Vineyard

Aging: 65% New French oak for 20 months

95 Points - Owen Bargreen

"100% varietal and coming from this famed site in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, the outstanding 2021 Passing Time ‘Champoux Vineyard’ Merlot offers steak tartare, black cherry compote and mocha tones on the nose with freshly tilled soils. The palate is soft and seamless with a generous mouthfeel and glorious sense of length. Finishing long with dense black and red fruits alongside stony minerals and loamy soils, this stunning new Merlot is already drinking beautifully at the three year mark. Enjoy now and over the next fifteen plus years to come. Drink 2024-2040"
