Winemaker’s Notes
We love Washington State Merlot, and think it’s one of the greatest places in the world to grow and make it. That’s part of why we are so honored to get to work with a little slice of history with the old vine Merlot at Dionysus Vineyard. Our 2017 BFM consists of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot and stands up to its reputation of being the biggest Merlot based blend coming out of Washington today!
