Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Merlot 2017
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
|Brand||Chateau Ste. Michelle|
We craft this wine to be our complex yet approachable Merlot. The wine offers aromas of black cherry, leather and spice with layers of rich dark red fruit flavors and a long, smooth, sweet finish. A touch of Syrah adds a jammy fruit character. I think of this wine as a great "everyday red. Pair with beef, lamb, grilled salmon, hearty pastas.
Fragrant aromas of fresh herb, flower, raspberry, cocoa and wood spice are followed by orange peel, raspberry and spice flavors. A firm sense of tannic structure backs it up.
Sleek in focus, offering discreet red currant and green tea flavors. Drink now through 2022. 125,000 cases made.
