Isenhower Cellars 2001 Red Paintbrush Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

This could be labeled Merlot, but the winery has apparently elected to go with flower names for its wines. By any name it's delicious, with sweet cherry fruit framed in big, dark toasted flavors from new American and French barrels. It's a big wine that keeps the alcohol under 14% and consequently does not fatigue the palate. Paul Gregutt
