J. Bookwalter 2003 Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

Predominantly Merlot, the blend also includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot (7% each). Smooth, supple and silky, it's dense and deeply saturated—inky to the eye and thick against the glass. The flavors show plenty of char and chocolate, with mocha, coffee bean, cherry and cassis thickly applied. Lip-smacking flavor bolstered with natural acids, sweet tannins and a long finish.
