2013 Northstar Columbia Valley Merlot
The 2013 vintage has rich concentrated aromas of cherry, raspberry and vanilla that lead into flavors of spice and chocolate. It is subtle and soft with a lingering toasted oak finish. This wine was created to enjoy now, or for many years to come as it will age gracefully. Blend: 75% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot.
“Supple and expressive, plush in texture but not weighty, layering blueberry and currant flavors with hints of cream and green olive. Lingers easily. Best from 2018 through 2023.” – Wine Spectator
