Hightower 2000 Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

Good vineyard sources and adept handling make for a tight, muscular Merlot that succeeds in a lackluster vintage. This shows some muscle, with firm, plump fruit and solid underpinnings of smooth tannin. Black olive/herbal notes add complexity. Paul Gregutt
