2004 Columbia Crest Merlot Reserve
Blend: 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon "This classic Washington state Merlot offers aromatics of spice, blackberry, and chocolate which lead into a balanced palate of velvety-textured fruit and tannins. The long, seductive finish lingers." - Ray Einberger, Winemaker
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very much Merlot in its ripe-cherry focus and its slightly supple feel, this solid, medium-full-bodied offering is seasoned with scattered touches of briar and loam that speak to its fraction of Cabernet as does its complement of finishing tannin. Just tough enough to commend a few years of keeping, it has plenty of substance and the essential balance to grow for four or five years.
