Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Merlot from Washington State opens with a fragrant cranberry bouquet with a hint of cherry-cola. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a chalky mineral infused red cherry with hints of old oak and strawberry rhubarb pie. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins stick around for a bit. This Merlot would be ideal with a juicy Angus burger. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Brimming with aromas and flavors of cherries, blueberries, cedar, vanilla, and spice. This Columbia Valley Merlot is full-bodied and mouth-filling.
