2012 Merlot Review in Great Northwest Wines

Our 2012 Merlot was featured in Great Northwest Wines! Read the transcript below.

Seattle Seahawks fans can order bottles of this Merlot that pays tribute to the Twelves, and it’s a wine worthy of serving on Saturday night, even though it’s priced for Tuesday night. Kirkland, Wash., vintner Robert Delf and his winemaker, Robert Smasne, continue to rack up gold medals for their collaborations, just as this fruit-forward Merlot did at the 2014 American Wine Society national competition. That group of judges in North Carolina no doubt found tones of sweet Marionberry, President plum and cherry pipe tobacco before admiring its pleasing acidity and well-balanced tannins. It’s reminiscent of hiking in a forest and gathering mountain berries, and the finish is both expressive and lengthy.

Rating: Outstanding!
