Nice. Thicker and more complex than I remember with the 2006. Blackberry and herbal notes come across. A good nose on Berrys and vanilla. Give it an hour to open. Another good Washington Merlot from Northstar.

Nose. Strong cedar, violet. With earthy pepper upon aeration. Taste. Pencil Shaving woodiness with blueberry subtlety. Velvety, satin body with soft finish. Low tannin but dry. Perfection and wonderful. Wish I'd bought two cases!

Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Built with the same oaky richness and similar ripe and outgoing fruit characteristics as its vintage mate, this wine is at once a bit beamier on the palate and slightly more developed in its display of engaging fruit. The choice between these two is not so much about "better" but about slightly readier to drink today versus slightly more likely to have a long lifeline. And there is no penalty in trying them both.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

"Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Fairly intense in volume and extracted in character with ripe cherries attended by notes of cassis and briar and enriched by creamy oak scents

Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Fairly intense in volume and extracted in character with ripe cherries attended by notes of cassis and briar and enriched by creamy oak scents, this supple-textured wine comes with an inviting bit of openness to start before firming up well towards the back. Its focused, fruity flavors pick up a snappy cranberry-like zestiness at the finish and manage to be both ripe and tasty on the one hand and lively and cellarable on the other.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Northstar's Columbia Valley Merlot nicely captures the silky finesse of the vintage. Velvety, deep and rich, it's loaded with toast, licorice and chocolate, along with plenty of ripe red and black fruits. It's three quarters Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sau... Wine Enthusiast. A Merlot wine from Washington in USA. 2006 Northstar Merlot 750ml
