Wine Details & Tasting Notes

$50/bottle Horse Heaven Hills Merlot for just $16? Uh-huh. Grab this one folks - its fantastic.

This wine comes to us from the same producers as Lots 90, 91 and 92 and was intended to be a new "Reserve" launch that simply got nixed by COVID-related business concerns. The nexus of quality and value for Merlot is Washington State and this wine is certainly emblematic.

Opaque, almost inky in the glass. Great extraction and color. The nose is brooding and graphitic with dense black fruit and earth simmering below the surface. Oh, boy, there's lots to come here. Spicy on entry with gobs of dense black fruit riding a robust tannin framework to long, richly textured and powerful finish. Swaddled in baby fat, Lot 205 is actually quite delicious right now and has a tremendous future.
