Full Pull Wines Reviews 2008 Merlot

"...there’s some nice, dusty tannins on the back end, offering a touch of grip & a sense of seriousness."

Paul Zitarelli, FullPullWines.com, March 2012

2008 Forgeron Cellars Merlot, Columbia Valley

 "The Merlot comes from StoneTree (43%), Boushey (29%), and Klipsun (14%). The remainder is Alder Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon, and it’s all in French oak, 2/3 new. Production was a relatively miniscule 122 cases for the 2008 vintage, so I’m not sure how long this will be around.

"This is a fine example of Euro-inflected Washington Merlot. The typical, attractive Merlot flavors (cherry, dark chocolate, licorice) and texture (silky) are in place. And then there’s some nice, dusty tannins on the back end, offering a touch of grip and a sense of seriousness."
