J. Bookwalter, Foreshadow Merlot 2012, Columbia Valley, Washington
Tasting Note: A fulsome merlot with body and enjoyable aromatics that leap out of your glass.
Medium-intensity ruby in color with some garnet around the edges, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of black plum, red currant and raspberry with hints of blackberry and violet petal.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied merlot has medium-plus-intensity, red-and-black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium tannin.
The wine has midpalate concentration.
Will make you love merlot again.
Price: $40 (I paid $19)
