88pointsE. B. Foote 2003 Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

This is Wahluke Slope fruit, which means a hot climate, high alcohol, nothing-shy-about-it red wine. The Merlot is buttressed with 11% Cab Franc, which gives a tannic underpinning and a hint of green tea in the finishing tannins. Substantial and thick, it's definitely a hearty wine for meaty, midwinter dishes. Paul Gregutt
