The Super Substance Merlot Northridge from Wines of Substance is an excellent, pure red wine from the Columbia Valley.
In the glass, this wine shines in a deep ruby red with purple reflections. The bouquet reveals strong notes of black, juicy currants and noble plum - accompanied by hints of cocoa. The palate is also pampered by the aromas of the nose. The texture is wonderfully dense and harmonizes perfectly with the wonderful tannins and fruit. The finale is carried by cocoa nuances and is unforgettably long lasting.
