Pine & Post Merlot, Washington State, 2009

Pine & Post wines are created from a long standing tradition of outstanding winemaking from Washington State's acclaimed Columbia Valley. Washington's success with wine grapes is due in large measure to the state's unique geography. The vineyards are planted on the east side of the Cascade Mountains, which serve to protect the region from marine weather off the Pacific coast. Warm daytime temperatures ripen fruit to perfection resulting in wines that are filled with fruit flavor and character. Alc 13.5% by vol. Vinted and bottled by Pine & Post Winery, Walla Walla, WA.
