Barnard Griffin 2005 Reserve Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

This is 100% Merlot and barrel aged in 100% new oak. It has lovely, sweet black cherry fruit, with concentrated flavors but without even a hint of jammy or overripe character. The acids are in balance, and the wine is very pure, adding streaks of tobacco, espresso and licorice through the lingering finish. Paul Gregutt
