CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE

MERLOT 2014

Columbia Valley, Washington

486936 (XD) 750 mL $21.95

2

TASTING NOTE: A blockbuster Washington

Merlot from a strong vintage. Aromas of

black cherry, spice and smoke. A splash of

Syrah in this mostly Merlot wine adds a

depth of black raspberry flavour and supple

texture. Washington didn't suffer from the

phylloxera root louse devastation so the

vines are still planted on 100% vinifera

rootstock and convey that typicity beautifully.

Pair with grilled pork chops. Drink: 2014-

2021. Score:

93

TASTING NOTE: Aromas of dried berry,

medium body, silky tannins and a fresh

and clean finish. Tight and pretty. Drink or

hold. Score:
