rated: April 1, 2007 , Winemaker's notes
"Our Columbia Valley Merlot is soft, rich and easy to enjoy, while offering plenty of complexity. Attractive aromas of dusty cherry, ginger, cinnamon and cedar lead to layers of concentrated cherry fruit flavors. This wine has the structure and fruit-driven power that is characteristic of Washington Merlot."
