Buried Cane Merlot Washington 2008

Member Review by jtryka:

I love a good big bold Cabernet, but I also am a huge fan of exceptionally dry red wines, after all, I learned to like red wines in Paris! So a nice Merlot will always have a place in my cellar and a glass to be filled. Which brings me to tonight's selection, the 2008 Buried Cane Merlot from Washington State. You must know that wines of the Northwest, and particularly the Columbia Valley have a special place in my heart. This wine was a WTSO Cheapskate Wednesday selection, so you know it's a value. The wine has a wonderful nose of ripe berry, leather and spice. The taste is exceptionally dry, with subtle fruit flavors and a smooth finish. Overall, I would rate this wine a solid 3.5, and it was a great bargain at only $8! I'll be enjoying a glass or two with some linguine and marinara sauce (sorry, no time for a fancy dinner on a work night!), but it would pair well with a nice baked salmon as well!
