Januik Winery Columbia Valley Merlot 2020
Varietal: Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from various vineyards throughout Columbia Valley. After destemming and crushing, grapes were fermented on their skins in small lots
for an average time of 8 days. After being pressed off, each lot of wine was moved to an equal mix of new and once used French oak barrels for 20 months of barrel aging during which time the wine was racked every 5 months.
Taste: This highly textured, medium-bodied Merlot reveals layers of dark raspberry, boysenberry and cocoa notes in the nose that translate into fleshy black fruit and chocolate flavors in the mouth. Brimming with a tremendous amount of texture and length, this wine should age gracefully for a minimum of 12-15 years
