2005 Merlot Review from Full Pull Wines

"...a wonderful example of what Washington can do with Merlot ...The purity & clarity are noteworthy..."

 Paul Zitarelli, Full Pull Wines, November 2010

"It's a bottle that elegantly brushes away any preconceived notions of Merlot as wimpy or insipid...Complex, structured, & well along the path to integration, this presents a wonderful example of what Washington can do with Merlot. A core of mint- & mineral-tinged black cherries is framed by integrated-oak notes of espresso & dark chocolate. The purity & clarity are noteworthy here; this is a ringing bell of Merlot."
