Waterbrook 2008 Reserve Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

Though this is pure Merlot, it is structured much like a Cabernet Sauvignon. It shows more depth than breadth, with smoky black fruits, plum and black cherry, and a pleasing purity. It finishes with a distinct herbal edge, slightly bitter. Can it gain a bit of mass with further bottle age? Time will tell. Paul Gregutt
