Merlot, ‘Columbia Valley’, Januik Winery

Columbia Valley vineyards grow Merlot that gives Washington winemakers a reason to smile. With the grapes our winemaker uses from the state’s top vineyards, Januik consistently turns out Merlot with that WOW-factor that leaves wine drinkers smiling.

A blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon which includes grapes from Klipsun, Ciel du Cheval, and Weinbau vineyards. Raspberry, vanilla and spice notes fill the glass. The finish is long and lush.

Tasting Notes

This well-structured, medium-bodied Merlot shows lots of black cherry, plum and spice notes in the nose that flow into fleshy black fruit and chocolate flavors in the mouth. With an abundance of texture and length, this wine should age gracefully for a minimum of 10 years.
