External Reviews for Columbia Crest Merlot Columbia Valley Grand Estates
"Grand Estates Merlot is harvested from vineyards located predominantly on the Horse Heaven Hills (which contributes texture and body) and the Wahluke Slope (for aromatics and complexity). Columbia Valley vineyards are seated east of the Cascade Mountain range. Up to 14,000 fee high, the mountains effectively block eastward-moving wet weather systems from the Pacific Ocean. Aromas of vanilla bean, coffee bean, and mocha introduce this classic Merlot. Dark chocolate covered cherries, caramel and nutmeg flavors meld with silky tannins and create a long and elegant finish.
