Accolades for Merlot

The Wine Advocate Awards 2007 Klipsun Merlot 91+ Points

"...a medium to full-bodied, structured, potentially complex Merlot with savory flavors, ripe tannins, & a lengthy finish."

Dr Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate, September 2011

"The 2007 Merlot Klipsun Vineyard (100%) spent 32 months in 60% new French oak. It offers up an aromatic array of cedar, herbs and spices, incense violets, cassis, and black currant leading to a medium to full-bodied, structured, potentially complex Merlot with savory flavors, ripe tannins, and a lengthy finish. It, too, will benefit from 3-4 years of additional bottle age and will be at it's best from 2014 to 2022+. 91+ Points"

"French ex-pat Marie-Eve Gilla is a partner and winemaker of Forgeron Cellars, located in Walla Walla. These are the finest wines I have tasted to date from this reliable source."
