Chateau Ste. Michelle

Indian Wells Columbia Valley Merlot 2016

It is time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

This 6 year old Merlot from Washington State is still drinking very nicely.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish /brick rim.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with nice complexity, and soft tannins on the finish.

Showing blackberries, tobacco, chocolates, coffee, black pepper, dates, earth, cooked plums, raisins, figs and herbs.

Good right out of the bottle, and better with airtime.

Good by itself as a sipping wine. Very tasty and affordable. A good party wine too.

A blend of Merlot with a touch of Syrah.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
