89pointsChateau Ste. Michelle 2010 Ethos Reserve Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

The latest Merlot release from Ethos pushes the alcohol up past 15%, and the wine remains stubbornly closed and tannic, even after several hours of breathing time. Blueberry and cassis fruit are in play, though the tannins take over quickly, leading into a finish with some chalky minerality. Paul Gregutt
