Rich concentrated aromas of black cherry, plum, mint, cedar, and chocolate that lead into flavors of black raspberry and vanilla. The wine is big and bold and was created to enjoy now, or for many years to come as it will age gracefully. Pair with herbed leg of lamb, beef, and grilled vegetables.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2015 Merlot checks in as a blend of 77% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Petit Verdot that spent 18 months in 51% new oak. It has a rounded, medium to full-bodied, plump style as well as notions of earth, red and black fruits, truffle, and underbrush. With a rounded, nicely textured mid-palate and sweet tannins, it will keep for upwards of a decade.

VinousBright, dark, moderately saturated red. High-toned aromas of plum, redcurrant, spices and herbs. Offers good intensity and depth and a restrained sweetness to its cherry and oak flavors. Boasts easy drinkability but also sound underlying structure. I knocked this wine a point for its slightly drying tannins and finishing herbal element. (14.5% alcohol)

Wine EnthusiastSomewhat lighter in color for the variety, aromas of fresh herb, flower, tire rubber, mocha and cherry are followed by lighter-styled fruit flavors. The tannins bring a slightly gritty feel.

Wine SpectatorTrim and tightly focused, featuring red currant and toasted sage flavors that finish with a slight tannic bite. Best after 2020. 4,076 cases made.

Wine AdvocateSomewhat simple and one-dimensional, the 2015 Columbia Valley Merlot is a juicy, medium-bodied wine with gently chewy tannins and aromas and flavors of dark fruits.
