Powers Merlot 2012, Columbia Valley Washington

2015 vintage – 100% Merlot. from Columbia Valley. Primary fermentation in stainless steel.100% malolactic fermentation completed in French oak. Aged 22 months in 3 year old French oak barrels. Notes: “Diverse layered aromatics of black cherry, blackberries, and cassis lead into a touch of cedar and sage on the nose. With dense flavors of cassis, cherry, and cocoa that linger on the complex palate, this wine has lush dusty tannins that are balanced by a nice touch of oak and spice on the finish. This is a very opulent and layered Merlot that you would expect from this world-class growing region.” – Winery.
