Northstar – Merlot 2012 – Columbia Valley – Washington

The nose is aromatic, fresh and relatively fine. It reveals notes of blackberry and slightly notes of cassis associated with a discreet hint of sour cherry as well as fine woody notes and discreet sweet spices (Ceylon tea, Tobacco). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, well-conducted and offers a small mineral frame. In mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh blackberry, boysenberry, black cherry and slight notes of cassis associated with touches of ripe strawberry as well as touches of plum juice, fine woody notes and sweet spices. Tannins are well made. Good length and persistence (freshness, toasted notes and a fine touch of dark chocolate).
