I love this Washington Merlot. It’s distinctly different from California versions. This is Northstar’s high end offering. They are based in Walla Walla often thought of as the top area for Merlot in Eastern Washington but this carries the Columbia Valley designation. I just find that odd but there’s nothing odd about this wine... at all. It carries the rich texture and density of a great wine with a nice level of acidity and structure to hold it steady. Worthy of its hefty price.
