In late 2015, there will be a new reason to visit Willcox.
Carlson Creek Vineyard will be introducing a brand new 10,000 case winery and tasting room to their 160 acre property. The local, family-owned vineyard is working with Napa Valley firm BAR Architects. Sounds like a wine tasting dream.
In addition, Carlson Creek Vineyard just released their first-ever Merlot varietal. The 2012 vintage, aged in French and Hungarian oak barrels, is a robust Merlot highlighted by flavors of plum and cracked peppers with a lasting finish.
According to the people who know better, it’s “a perfect pairing for ribs and a wine that both serious oenophiles (that’s a wine-lover, by the way) and the newly initiated can enjoy.”
