Columbia Crest Grand Estates Merlot 2016
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
The Grand Estates merlot has a rich aromatic profile with notes of chocolate and dark cherries. On the palate our Merlot has complex fruit flavors followed by a smooth, velvety finish. Pair this wine with Blue cheese, duck, beef, veal and dark chocolate.
Trim and moderately built, with sleek currant and tobacco notes. Drink now through 2022.
Vanilla and nougat aromas are out front, along with notes of green wood, with the palate showing more of the same. The oak completely takes over, with the variety nearly impossible to find.
