Blended with 14% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec and 2% a Petit Verdot, the 2017 Columbia Valley Merlot is dark ruby colored at the core with a soft purple rim. Dense and chewy aromas of plum preserves and blackberry jus flutter out of the glass with a note of fresh rain on the sidewalk. Medium-bodied, the wine is tannic and feels like it’s been pushed too far and has lost some of its sincerity before ending with a gripping tannic finish and elevated alcohol expression.
