Accolades for Merlot

Seattle Times rates 2009 Merlot #52 in Top 100 of 2012

The Seattle Times' 7th Annual Wine Adviser Top 100 list focuses exclusively on  Oregon & Washington wines.

..."To compile this list I have searched through a year's worth of tasting notes & selected 1 wine each - the highest scoring - from 100 different wineries. It is my goal to be inclusive...every winery gets just a single spot on the list...this will give readers a better sense of the scope & depth of the region's offerings..."

2009 Forgeron Cellars Merlot, Columbia Valley ($30)

93 Points, Ranked #52 / 100

"A hint of mint can be detected in the opening aromas of this Merlot, which includes a splash of Cabernet Franc in the blend. Licorice, smoke & deep cassis flavors all contribute to an intense, seductive wine, with velvety tannins enrobing a lingering finish. 93 Points"
