Product Details

Merlot - Red American Wine

The deep purple hue of our Merlot hints at the enticing aromas and fruit flavors of dark berries and ripe plum on the richly textured palate. With mouth-watering acidity, the lingering finish features notes of vanilla and toasty oak. Enjoy with grilled tenderloin.

In 1962, a group of friends, including six University of Washington Professors, realized the distinctively ideal grape growing conditions of Washington's Columbia Valley. Together, they opened the region's first premium winery, now known as Columbia Winery, beginning more than 50 years of crafting rich, award-winning and deliciously drinkable wines. Our success is a testament to both our visionary founders and our region's exquisite conditions.

Regional Information

The 2016 growing season began earlier than usual, with warmer temperatures lasting through spring and into summer. The arid climate and ample sunshine led to an early bud break and accelerated vine growth. As we approached harvest, the temperatures cooled and grapes ripen to perfection. We patiently waited to harvest at the optimal moment. The resulting wines are full complex fruit aromas and character.

Vinification Details

After harvest, the grapes for our 2016 Merlot were destemmed and allowed to cold soak for 24 hours. Grapes were transferred to stainless-steel fermenters for up to 11 days. Throughout fermentation, we performed several rack and returns for optimal extraction of colour and flavour. A touch of oak aging provided distinct brown spice notes.
