Luke Columbia Valley Merlot

Columbia Valley, Washington

I heard stories about him for years, saw him in the flesh a few times, and spoke to him only once. The true depth of a man’s character is often unknowable, but even one conversation was enough to convince me that Luke was an imitation of no one. He revealed him-self slowly, like a freed wind emerging from the shadow of a mountain. Seemingly ordinary at first, but undeniably complex. Bold and determined, but unabashedly generous.

Varietals: 96% Merlot 4% Cabernet Franc Alc: 14.7% pH: 3.73 TA: 5.4g/L French & American Oak 2,911 cases produced

Vineyards: Stone Tree, Weinbau, Ravenscliff, King Fuji, Southwind
