MERLOT AND BEHOLD

The warm, gently cascading hillsides of the Yakima Valley are some of the most coveted land in all of Washington State for the cultivation of Merlot. We at W.O.W. have been eyeing this region for many years, impressed by its ability to consistently produce fleshy, intense and concentrated wines.

 

On Cloud Wine Merlot is sourced from vineyards that are a short distance from the Yakima River, benefitting greatly from its cooling breezes, allowing the vines extra time for ripening by extending the growing season. The dry climate and sparse geology forces the Merlot roots to penetrate deep into the soil to look for water, and this struggle is reflected in the finished wine's electric, vivid fruit character and firm spine.
