Columbia Crest Merlot Reserve

Wine Details





Winemaker's Notes

(From 2000 Vintage) Blackberry and chocolate aromatics are pronounced. The palate offers a balance between blackberry and cocoa. This is a classic Washington Merlot with fruit-forward appeal and a lingering velvety texture in the mouth.
