Our Indian Wells grapes are sourced from their namesake Indian Wells Vineyard, along with a variety of other warm-climate Washington vineyards that range from the Wahluke Slope to Cold Creek Vineyard. Our wines are created in the luscious, opulent New World style, ensuring their distinctively rich, round and full-bodied flavor profile.


According to Wine Enthusiast - 2011 was an excellent year for this affordable Merlot, with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Syrah included in the final blend. It seems to tilt more toward Bordeaux and away from California in style, bringing well-integrated hints of herb, tobacco and earth along with a core of black currant fruit.

Tasting Notes - The Indian Wells Merlot offers ripe berry fruit aromas and jammy flavors typical of Wahluke Slope reds. This is a full bodied style of warm climate Merlot with a round, supple finish. We added Wahluke Slope syrah to enhance the mouthfeel and rich fruit character. I call this my pasta wine!
