2009 2009 Pedestal
- Winemaker Michel Rolland
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Merlot
Round, generous and expressive, offering plum, loganberry, cherry and clove flavors that pick up hints of loam and floral character as they finish tightens its focus. Impressive for its length and deft balance. Highly Recommended, #11 ranking in their Top 100 Wines of 2012
Cellar Selection. Bay leaf and pretty herb scents introduce a wine that remains tightly wound. Black cherry and cassis flavors are set in a frame of smoky espresso. The tannins are polished, and the finish is deliciously long.
