Gifford Hirlinger 2005 Merlot (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

This limited (350 case) release is 86% Merlot, the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. There is significant influence from new oak barrels, and the wine is better for it. The oak sharpens the edges and adds tannic definition, with a lightly toasty finish. The fruit is light and pleasant. Paul Gregutt
