Passing Time Winery

2018 Merlot

Tasting Notes: Very rich on the nose with a bouquet of dark plum, blackberry, cocoa nibs, crushed thyme, and pipe tobacco.  There is a ton of depth on the palate, with a seductive, silky texture featuring tons of dark fruit flavors, blackberry reduction, chocolate ganache, cigar box, licorice pastille, and lingering herb notes.  This is a benchmark expression of Horse Heaven Hills Merlot from a top vintage.  While tasting great now, this will do well in the cellar for years to come.  Drink 2022-2032.

Appellation: Horse Heaven Hills
