Zerba Cellars 2005 Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

This is quite minty and light, with a bright, sharp edge to it. The fruit is just ripe enough, but retains a fair amount of herb and green character. Where does that mint note come from? It adds a racy element that some will enjoy more than others. The tannins have been corralled a bit, so the wine has a harmonious finish. It's simple and plain, but drinking pleasantly. Paul Gregutt
