About the Vineyard
Airfield Estates is a fourth generation family farm based in the Yakima Valley cultivating a wide range of premium grapes and crafting estate grown wines of exceptional quality. As the name suggests, Airfield Estates has ties to aviation. A portion of the family property operated as a training base for hundreds of Army Air Corps pilots during World War II. The pride, passion, and dedication of these heroes provide a great source of inspiration as we strive to pay tribute to them with our wines.
This Merlot delivers an inviting bouquet of black cherry, vanilla, clove, and nutmeg leading to an abundance of bright cherry and soft toasted oak on the palate with a round mouthfeel and firm, lingering tannins taking hold on the finish.
