Columbia Crest Horse Heaven Hills H3 Merlot 2017
|Region||United States, Washington, Horse Heaven Hills|
The 2016 Merlot H3 is a pure expression of a Merlot that has a fresh and fruity nose, showing a mix of American and French oak aromas. Sweet vanilla and toasted coconut, Juicy red plum and dark cherries all can be tasted on the medium-bodied palate with soft floral flavors. Ending with a good, clean finish, the wine is easy-drinking and delivers well for the price.
Sleek and focused, with lively black cherry, toasted spice and herb flavors that finish with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2023.
Pitted dark cherry and vanilla aromas lead to light but creamy feeling fruit and barrel flavors. The oak plays a large part in the show, but it largely works.
