Another winner from Northstar! The 2008 was good but a bit light on the structure and substance. This is a bigger more complex wine with a good back bone and very nice balance, Northstar does Washington Merlot right....again and again! Cheers!
External Reviews for Northstar Winery Northstar Merlot
Free Shipping on a 6 Pack! Washington lies at the same latitude as the Bordeaux region in France, yet has the additional benefit of a longer growing season and cooler nighttime temperatures.
Washington lies at the same latitude as the Bordeaux region in France, yet has the additional benefit of a longer growing season and cooler nighttime temperatures. These characteristics aid in the even ripening of grapes and the locking in of acidity, resulting in full-bodied yet balanced Merlots.
