Milbrandt Vineyards 2010 Merlot wine review by (PB)
Black cherry hue with bouquet of blackberry, cigar box,slight cocoa note with a faint herbal presence.
Palate--Supple texture with silky tannins, big dark fruit berry beam with a finish of fruity cocoa.
I have a difficult time differentiating some Merlots from Cabernet Sauvignons and this is one. To me this is a typical Washington State Columbia Valley expression of the terroir with that ever present chocolate/mocha/cocoa depending on the production and varietal.
I paid $14 for this and I like it so raise a glass!
