Washington Hills Merlot 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit tight on the nose with an early hint of minerality followed by some tobacco and dried chile notes along with mint topped cherry and plum fruit. Soft and broad in the mouth with nice transparency to the black fruit on the palate. There’s a faint suggestion of black raspberry sweetness to the fruit which is washed away on the mid palate by slightly creamy chocolate and carob notes and a soft wash of herbaceousness. No really tannins to speak of, this is smooth and easy drinking yet delivers a little complexity along with nicely bright fruit and shows a little licorice and a hint of minerality on the moderately long finish. 85pts
