The Merlot by Columbia Winery is presented in a glass in an intense and dark purple. The nose is flattered by the delicious aromas of plums, which are complemented by fine spices.
This American red wine impresses on the palate with the notes of dark berries, vanilla and hints of oak wood. Rich and full-bodied, this wine goes into its persistent finish.
Vinification of the Columbia Winery Merlot
This cuvée from the Columbia Valley was vinified from the grape varieties Merlot (85%), Syrah (8%), Malbec (5%). Various red grape varieties were used for the remaining 2%.
After harvesting, the grapes were destemmed and cold macerated. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks took place in a temperature-controlled manner, followed by ageing in oak barrels.
