With an overall 95 point vintage rating from the Wine Spectator, the 2012 Merlot's from Washington State are incredibly popular right now.

Ideal conditions produced powerful wines with great elegance, and experts have long described Washington State Merlot's as having the structure and finesse of the Old World, while displaying the flashy and ripe fruit style of the New World.

The cooler climates found in the Columbia Valley, give the best of both worlds. Rich aromas and bold flavors are matched with lower alcohol levels, and more structure. Crafted by the award winning team at Basalt Cellars, this full-bodied red has quickly become one of our top selling wines at The Wine Buyer!

Rating
"Rich, with sumptuous flavors of ripe blackberry, dark cherry and sweet spice flavors. This plush Merlot offers a full bodied mid-palate picking up notes of chocolate and ending with a vibrant long finish." Beverage Dynamics, 90 Points

Wine maker notes
Basalt Cellars Winery is the sum of two people's passion for great wine and a local 100-year plus history of viticulture in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley. During the late 1800's, wineries from the valley were winning awards with wines produced from locally grown grapes. Prohibition brought an end to the local wine industry until 2004 when Basalt Cellars put Lewiston-Clarkston back on the map. Grapes are now grown locally on their estate vineyard and contracted from other quality growers around the Columbia Valley AVA including Sagemoor's Wienbau, Dionysis and Bacchus Vineyards, Dwelly Vineyard in Walla Walla, Verhey Vineyard near Union Gap and Willard Family Farms near Prosser.
