Columbia Valley, Washington, USA
Grapes are sourced from hallowed vineyards in the sub-regions of Yakima and Red Mountain. Washington State has established itself as one of the world’s finest areas for Merlot, and this offering from one the state’s oldest wineries shows why. Full and fleshy with loads of rich, ripe blackcurrant and strawberry fruit, notes of earth, coffee and a hint of dried herbs add interest. This is affordable luxury personified.
