A buoyant and appealing wine, the 2016 Columbia Valley Merlot offers up ripe fruit balanced with tannin and acid. It has a well-defined middle palate and a lasting finish, particularly after being opened for some time. Well-knit and full in the mouth.
The fruit comes from the Two Blondes and Champoux Vineyards. The 2016 vintage was an easy growing season which resulted in high yields.
