Description
It's a unique and curious fact of winemaking in Washington that their Merlots can be more intense and structured than their Cabernets. The Columbia Crest H3 Merlot is a fine example. Big, bold and fleshy, it delivers a complex assortment of classic Merlot aromas and flavours: impressive dark cherry, plum and berry fruit, with underlying earth and vanilla tones. Pair with beef stew, or get yourself a rack of rib, fire up the grill, and let the good times roll.
Tasting Notes
This Merlot contains splashes of Syrah and Malbec and was aged in a mix of old and new oak (at a ratio of about 3 to 1) for 15 months. Though still smooth, Washington Merlots tend to be relatively more tannic than Merlots from elsewhere. This one is no exception, with noticeable tannins framing red fruit, mulberry, oak and spice tones. Though it has Washington's characteristic grip, this is still an approachable wine that will have broad appeal. Give it a go with lamb burgers or mildly spiced pork ribs. (Vintages panel, Aug. 2017)
