Itä 2019 Les Collines Vineyard Merlot (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

Editors' Choice

This vineyard in the foothills of the Blue Mountains has largely established its reputation on Syrah, but this wine is an announcement that, in the right hands, it can make stellar Merlot in a distinctive style. The aromas pop, with notes of dark raspberry, plum and generous amounts of fresh herbs. There's a freshness and vitality to the flavors that completely captivate, with vibrant acidity behind it all. It has extended hang time on the finish. Put it on the dinner table to see it at its best. It's a swoonworthy statement wine for this producer and vineyard. Sean P. Sullivan
