  • Apex Cellars Merlot Columbia Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Tight and focused on the nose with gentle wood tones and spice accents. Nice fruit, bright favors and good ripeness emerges on the palate but this remains restrained and slightly understated in the mouth with lovely plum and spice flavors.

    Tight and smoky and rather Syrah driven on the nose with dried thyme and olive notes along with mineral earth, smoke, black currant fruit and pipe tobacco. Bright juicy blackcurrant fruit dominates the plump and smooth palate with just enough fruity to buffer against the slightly austere tannins. A little meatiness and dried fruit graces the m...
