Given the exceptionally high standard that Merlots have established in Washington, this wine delivers. The sappy, juicy fruit flavors bring in a mix of berries, cassis and cherry; then there are layers of chocolate, coffee, smoke and toast. But the real joy is the muscle—the underpinning of structure (from acid, tannin, oak and of course great fruit) that contributes sinew and strength. This wine should age for a decade or more.

Medium garnet hue. Powerful scents of dried cherry and raspberry with a whiff of wintergreen. Juicy flavors of raspberry and wild cherry. Rustic tannins and hints of espresso and dust emerge in the lingering close.

An ultra-serious Merlot with a super-abundance of everything, this wine is most impressive on account of still seeming balanced and harmonious. Conspicuously dark and deep in pigment, it also shows excellent concentration and terrific depth of flavor. Notes of ripe blackberries and black cherries are penetrating and very persistent, and though the wine is firmly structured with tannin and smoky, spicy oak, the tannins are very ripe and soft and the oak is exceptionally well integrated. A terrific wine. Awarded a gold medal in the San Diego International Wine Competition.

The 2005 Merlot Ethos contains 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec in the blend. Opaque purple-colored, it has a fragrant bouquet of pain grille, earth notes, black cherry, and blackberry jam. This leads to a mouth-coating wine with good depth and concentration while retaining a sense of elegance. The balance and length of the finish suggest that this solid effort will evolve for 2-3 years and be at its best from 2011 to 2020.

Exotically spicy, with scents of cardamom, cinnamon, coffee and tar, this merlot has beautifully balanced plum flavors. It’s restrained, built for a meal; it would excel with roast chicken and herbed potatoes.
