Excellent example of killer Red Willow merlot. David Lake helped put this vineyard on the map. Our friend from Barrage nailed it too. A bit young but strutting its stuff. Give this 5+ years and BOOING!

One of my favorite Merlots for the state of Washington. 100% merlot - 3 vineyards blended. Solid wine and not overpriced. I used to by a bottle a week or so because I couldn't control my consumption of it. :) dig it!

Really nice flavor bomb of a Merlot from WA.

This Merlot certainly packs a punch. This could even wait to be opened a few more years. Wonderful complexity still to this one. Balances out the longer you have it open.

Got it going on in all the right places.
100% Merlot, Columbia Valley, Red Willow Vineyard. I would like to try this again about 5 years down the road.
