Like pinot noir, merlot should be grown only in certain places and in certain soil types. And Chateau Ste. Michelle is among the wineries that have figured out exactly where and how, bottling several delicious renditions every year. The Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Merlot ($16) is rich but vibrant, with layers of red berry and plum flavors and a touch of spice on the refreshing finish. This Washington red is an ideal fireplace wine, but also welcome at the dinner table with roasted meats or winter veggies, hearty pastas and hard cheeses.

Deep, dark red. Nice nose with aromas of black plum, black cherry, and leather. More black fruit and leather as well as spice come through on the palate. Medium to full-bodied with lively acidity and medium tannins. Well-balanced with a long, smooth finish.

Reds for Hearty Winter Meals This is an exciting time for great values under $20. There are, perhaps, more of them to be found than ever before, and three very different red wines prove the point, each of them outstanding in its own way. From Washington, Chateau Ste. Michelle’s 2010 Columbia Valley Merlot is striking for its bright, delicious fruit, which is accented by subtle oak treatment. This relatively large-production wine demonstrates how it is entirely possible for big companies to make interesting and elegant wines, even in the $12 to $15 range, although they are more the exception than the rule. It has lovely red berry aromas, red and dark berry tastes and toast and vanilla notes. Enjoy it with a range of foods, including roast chicken and turkey, pork and lamb.

This 2009 Merlot from Chateau Ste. Michelle is a wine that will make you believe that you CAN buy a Fine Wine for only $11. And what really sets this wine apart is that is has the "Three B's". Blackberry, Bosyenberry AND Blueberry. They are all there - and are all balanced. Sure, only about $11 at the store - but easily worth more like $23 in your glass.
