Barnard Griffin Merlot 2017

Columbia Valley, Washington, United StatesBrown sugar dusted plum rules this sweet, ripe, doughy merlot from Columbia Valley. There's blackberry pie, vanilla on the warming palate, with ample wood spice, finishing with a bitter snap. It is aged 19 months in new and neutral European oak. A simple interpretation of what the grape is capable of in Washington State.Tasted: 06 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 31.00 consignment Producer: Barnard GriffinDistributors: Buyers & Cellars
