External Reviews for Forgeron Cellars Merlot Columbia Valley
The nose is ripe with maracchino cherries, eucalyptus, vanilla, lavender and spice. In the mouth, experience rich, dense fruit of blackberries and chocolate covered cherries laced with cinnamon. This wine is incredibly balanced from start to finish. It covers your entire palate and begs you to take another sip. The finish is long and lush with no end in sight. For a complete experience, our 2004 Merlot, Boushey vineyard calls for beef, so we suggest trying it with Beef Wellington or prime rib.
The growing season in 2003 was warmer than usual resulting in riper fruit with increased color extraction and tannins. Our 2003 Merlot is a beautifully balanced wine with nice structure and oak qualities that truly captures your attention from the first sip. This wine opens with aromas of ripe cherries and cocoa beans along with delicate floral scents of violets and lilacs. The mouthfeel is almost juicy with boysenberries, blackberries and red currants followed by hints of dark chocolate and cinnamon. The finish is long and lush with integrated tannins, which allow for extended cellaring time.
