Known as the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock remains one of the most influential figures in cinematic history. From humble origins as a technical clerk and copywriter, he went on to direct over 50 feature films in a career spanning six decades. Raise a glass to his legacy with TCM Hitch Merlot.

The wine hails from the Columbia Valley, Washington’s largest (and most prized) wine appellation. With its low rainfall and temperature variations (cold nights and warm, sunny days), it’s ideal for producing wines that offer bold-yet-balanced fruit flavors. In fact, the Columbia Valley shares its latitude with France’s famed Bordeaux region—where you’ll find some of the world’s most expensive Merlot—so it may come as no surprise that it yields such top-quality wines.

This silky Merlot offers ripe red-fruit flavors with an intriguing touch of dark chocolate. Enjoy it as Hitch would, with a delicious meal. Top food pairings include hearty red meats like beef or lamb, rich poultry dishes or creamy vegetarian meals, such as mushroom risotto.

A fittingly thrilling and complex tribute to Hitch, this Washington Merlot is made in very limited quantities. Don’t wait to order your share.
