2009 Merlot, Columbia Valley $30
4/5 Stars (Excellent) 

"A classically Washington Merlot with raspberry jam & mocha along with peppermint & barrel spices. The mouthfeel is luxurious & rich with ripe fruit flavors & fine grained tannins leading to a vanilla & mint-filled finish. A very pretty, expressive wine that shows a fascinating mixture of boldness & elegance. 94% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc. Boushey (50%), StoneTree (44%), & Weinbau vineyards. Aged in French & American oak (35% new). 14.2% alcohol. 185 cases produced."
