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!
