Accolades for Merlot
Wicked Cellars selects 2009 Merlot "Wine of the Week" May 5-11, 2013
"...the score from Paul Gregutt of Wine Enthusiast - 93 points! The highest score given to a Merlot in his report on NorthWest Wines for 2012."
"2009 Forgeron Cellars Merlot - Wine Enthusiast's 93-Point Pick!
What's not to like about a beautiful Washington Merlot? Some might say that the biggest drawback is that it IS Merlot. But what if we told you that this wine is so much more ... if fact if you tasted it blind you might believe that you were tasting a Cabernet!
But Merlot it is...full of cherry fruit & deep cherry-chocolate aromas. The mouthfeel is smooth as silk, & very full-bodied. This is one intense & multi-layered wine.
Marie-Eve Gilla's 2009 Forgeron Cellars Merlot is a superbly crafted piece of art. The fruit comes to us from 2 of Washington's premier vineyards ... Boushey & StoneTree. Then Marie-Eve works her magic!
And magic we really know we have. Just look at the score from Paul Gregutt of Wine Enthusiast - 93 points! The highest score given to a Merlot in his report on Northwest Wines for 2012.
There were only 185 cases of the wine made; so make sure some of it ends up in your stash!"
