2012 Heart Box Red Merlot


Yakima Valley
13.0% Alc. by Vol.

Heart Box Red will capture your heart. We named this wine after our oldest daughter’s practice of catching and locking our kisses in her “heart box” so she could take the kisses out whenever she needed one. She designed this label when she was 3 years old, it has been an icon of this wine ever since. Like us, you will find yourself wishing for one more pour of this delightful wine.
The 2012 Heart Box Red is 96% Merlot, blended with 2% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, all from Alder Ridge Vineyard in the Yakima Valley. This wine was aged for 24 months in 25% new American Oak barrels and 75% once-used French Oak barrels.  

The deep red color glistens on your glass as you swirl, leading to smells of ripe berries and a hint of vanilla. Tastes of warm black cherries are complimented with subtle mocha flavors releasing soft tannins and finishing with a velvety light toast.
