Northstar Stella Maris Columbia Valley 2008

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is a deep ruby color in the glass with a lovely nose of ripe plum, blackberries, leather, anise and green cedar, with just a hint of baking spice. The taste is lovely, with an explosion of black ripe fruit on the outset, but not sweet and jammy like some wines. The fruit transitions smartly to some green grass and tart cherry notes midpalate that lead you right to a silky smooth finish supported by very well structured tannins. The wine has such a lush mouthfeel, it's just a pleasure to sip, even on a summer afternoon!
