Merlot Pepper Bridge Vineyard 2013
Walla Walla Valley, Washington, $36.99

“Another juicy and lively red from this estate, the 2013 Merlot Pepper Bridge (100% Merlot aged 18-20 months in barrel) has slightly more complexity than the Red Mountain cuvee and gives up lots of plums, spring flowers and wild herb aromas and flavors. It is medium-bodied, moderately concentrated and best drunk in its youth. 88.” Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate 231.
