Northstar 2002 Merlot (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

The winery's Walla Walla bottling, though it accounts for less than a tenth of the 9,000- case production, is far more substantial and varietal than the Columbia Valley Merlot. Thick, chalky tannins, chewy blueberry/cherry fruit, good weight and length bring some power to what is otherwise a straightforward, rather tannic wine. Paul Gregutt
