2000 Merlot Columbia Valley Winemaker Notes T he 2000 vintage was extraordinary in Washington, and our 2000 Merlot certainly lives up to that billing. With a nose driven by high-tone fruit, vanillin, and spice, this wine is loaded with varietal character. The Leonetti house style for Merlot really shows through, as this wine is very concentrated, but ends with a fleshy softness that makes this wine so attractive to drink.
