oval shadow Chateau Ste. Michelle "The Nod" Merlot Columbia Valley

2014 "The Nod" Merlot

Columbia Valley

For this vintage, our intense, concentrated warmer vineyards united with cooler sites, which required the winemakers restraint rather than reinforcement to maintain freshness and balance. Bountiful brambles and delicate spices are complemented with select oak barrels to create a vibrant, focused wine.
