Columbia Winery Merlot 2016
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
Columbia Winery Merlot opens with a dark color that has a distinct purple edge. Enticing aromas of cherry and plum with a hint of violet float from the glass and continue to the palate, where they are joined by pronounced notes of toasty oak, vanilla and hints of mocha. Rich and plush in the mouth, this Merlot has firm tannins and a lingering finish. Enjoy with tenderloin medallions drizzled with a wild huckleberry glaze, roast chicken, or a tomato-based red sauce with Italian sausage and fennel over your favorite pasta.
Precise and expressive, with black cherry, tobacco and spice flavors that finish with refined tannins. Drink now through 2024. 31,000 cases made.
