Yakima Valley, Washington, $24.99
“Even with the low cropping levels, we ended up with a few extra barrels of Merlot. While most wine critics and reviewers look to Europe for their vision, we look away from Europe, not forgetting our experience for those wines. Washington wines are what we make. but we are well aware of the relationships that this Merlot has to the world.
Pollard Merlot is not your typical fruit simple wine. The savory aspects combined with expressions of sage brush and wild flowers make for a rich and balanced wine.” Winery Notes.
