Seven Falls 2010 Merlot, Wahluke Slope, $15
Best Buy! Doug Gore has returned to winemaking with this new label for Ste. Michelle Wine Estates. Gore, Columbia Crest’s original winemaker, oversees the company’s viticulture, winemaking and production. This label focuses on the Wahluke Slope, a warm region north that is considered by many to be the unsung hero of the Washington wine industry. This smooth, delicious Merlot shows off aromas of Bing cherries and exotic spices on the nose, followed by smooth, elegant and approachable flavors on the palate. Supple tannins combine with ripe red fruit for a classic, easy-drinking Merlot.
Production: 20,000 cases
Distribution: This wine is available primarily through restaurants in the Northwest, though it also will be for sale online, too.
