A lot of pleasant surprises for a Merlot: full-bodied, well-structured, and sophisticated. But as I drink it further, I wonder if the mystery that I'm trying to put my finger on comes from nuance of flavor or a mask of strong plum, blueberry and oak notes that obscure nothing at all.

The 2005 Merlot Estate was aged in French and American oak and bottled unfiltered. Purple-colored with a toasty, spicy, cassis, and cranberry-scented nose, the wine is soft and forward with good grip and a moderately long finish. This easy-going, seamless Merlot will provide pleasure over ther next 6 years. It is an excellent value. It would appear that little has changed since I first visited the Gordon Brothers Family Vineyards in 1990 when they were one of 42 wineries in Washington. Their estate bottled wines were friendly and well-priced and that continues today.

Ripe and generous, this is a silky, plush-textured mouthful of red plum, raspberry, cream and coffee flavors that arch enticingly from the first sip through the long, round finish. Drink now through 2013.

Winemaker's Notes:

The bright garnet color of this wine lends instant appeal. A rich, toasty oak, combined with lush, concentrated dark cherry and berry aromas greet the nose. Flavors of chocolate, spice and plum linger on the palate. This bold Merlot has a rich, well-balanced mouth-feel, and a wonderful smooth finish. This is a great wine to pair with your favorite grilled meats and a Bolognese pasta sauce.
