From Walla Walla to Bordeaux, we all need an everyday wine to relax with. Our Walldeaux Smithie is a Merlot-based blend of Old World & New World inspired by our building’s history as a blacksmith shop, our French heritage and training, and the evolving locale of Walla Walla, Washington.
Walldeaux Smithie is a non-vintage blend to create more consistency and density. Blending vintages allows a full tasting experience with complex layers from the “mature” vintages (barrel-aged 12-24 months), combined with fruity, youthful and juicy mouth-filling flavors from the “newer” vintage (usually a wine of the year aged a short time in seasoned barrels). These bright, young flavors deliciously complete the more polished, refined characteristics from the previous vintages.
Fresh and juicy yet bold with a firm structure. Full flavors and smooth tannins suggest a New World wine while its focus, balance, dark fruit and spice flavors are definitely reminiscent of Old World Bordeaux.
For everyday occasions....enjoy by itself, or with anything from backyard BBQ fare to Cougar Gold mac & cheese, rotisserie chicken, or a juicy grilled sirloin burger.
