Sineann Merlot 2014, Champoux Vineyard, Columbia Valley, WA$44.00Add to cart
Champoux — what else do you need to know? From the top-notch vineyard site comes this intense Merlot that is dark and powerful, complex and voluptuous. Dark, rich – to the point of voluptuous – powerful. This is what Merlot can be. Huge black cherry nose with graham, toast, and a hint of smoke. Sweet black cherry/plum flavors, accented by touches of plum liqueur, Chambord, toast, smoke, and pepper. Tannins are present, with a very slight grip. The finish, surprisingly for such a huge wine, has good acidity to balance the gobs of fruit. Sineann’s style is dark, aromatic with chocolate overtones and complex, silky tannins. A big, plush juicy wine. Paul Gregutt, Seattle Times, says: “…wraps its super-ripe cherry/berry fruit in rich layers of coffee, toffee and smoke.”
