Even though Cabernet Sauvignon is the most famous red grape grown in Washington State, Merlot is often the favorite of winemakers. Able to fully ripen in the hot summers of the Columbia, Yakima and Walla Walla valleys, it has the benfit of our frigid winters, forcing the vines to go dorment and resulting in more natural acidity in the wines. The ripeness of the Napa Valley and the structure of Bordeaux all in one place. Often ripe and rich, with cherry, cassis and milk chocolate notes, Washington State Merlot can compete with the finest in the world.
