Pine & Post Winery 2011 Merlot, Washington, $7

By on September 9, 2013

pine-and-post-merlot-bottleBest Buy! There’s not a lot of complexity from this lower-tier Precept label, but the yummy factor is rather high with this release, which includes Charbonneau and Wallula vineyards in its pedigree. Aromas bring hints of red currant, lime, vanilla, rose hips and lilac. The flavor profile is smooth with flavors of blackberry, strawberry, blueberry and chocolate. The amount of fruit-forward finesse has it drinking more like a Southern Oregon Pinot Noir than many Merlots from Washington.

    Tried this wine at a little Café yesterday–very nice. Where can I buy a case?

      Greeting Charles,
      It would probably be easiest to click on the hyperlink under the review where it says “Website.” That will take you to Precept’s website and send those folks an email letting them know where you live and where you might be able to find the wine. In the past, I’ve seen some Precept labels at Grocery Outlets, so you may consider looking there, too.
