Chateau Ste. Michelle 2007 Indian Wells Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

As with the Indian Wells Cabernet, winemaker Bob Bertheau is using a considerable amount of Syrah (19%) to beef up the flavors. The Merlot here seems a bit light, it fades out in midpalate. There is a chalkiness to the finish, and the tannins are just a little green. Paul Gregutt
