Ash Hollow 2004 Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

It's scented with a pretty mix of sandalwood, toasted cracker and blackberry jam, and the flavors follow into tart berry and black cherry. There's noticeable acid and some interesting grace notes, suggestive of flint and gun metal. The flavors linger pleasantly in the back of the throat. This is not a fleshy merlot by any means, but it is polished and evocative, and I like the suggestions of rock and iron ore that it has captured with the black cherry fruit. Paul Gregutt
