Northstar 2008 Merlot (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

Editors' Choice

Vineyard sources in 2008 are Spring Valley and Anna Marie (in the Seven Hills region). Tannic and aromatic, this spicy effort leads with black fruits, fresh herbs and a whiff of chocolate. An underlying minerality gives texture and length. Still young, it's balanced and already well-integrated. It should improve even more with a few years of bottle age. Paul Gregutt
