Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Stella Maris is Latin for Star of the Sea. With the lots that dont make our Columbia Valley and Walla Walla Merlots, our winemaker follows the Bordeaux tradition of making a ‘declassified wine, and creates Stella Maris.

    Bright ruby-red. Plum, spicecake, tobacco and nutty oak on the nose. Pliant, sweet and fairly fine-grained, with rather oaky currant and tobacco flavors along with a lightly weedy element that carries through to the aftertaste. This offers good fruit intensity and finishes with better sweetness than the '04 merlot, whose oak element dried its finish.
