First wine review of the new year. This Columbia-Crest wine shows how the Columbia Valley though further north of Napa Valley / Sonoma County can produce a nice and inexpensive Merlot and other red varietals. Low alcohol and higher than expected acid levels make this a very approachable wine. This is not a berry bomb Merlot. This wine holds characteristics of roasted red cherry, chocolate, Fall herbs and slight hint of black pepper.
Stay tuned for many more wine reviews to come in 2010 and this year I will start reviewing the winery visit experience.
