Pepper Bridge Merlot 2011
|Region||United States, Washington, Walla Walla Valley|
Here is a young, tight, firm Merlot, blended with 16% Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec. Those two grapes pull it even tighter, framing the black cherry fruit with sleek, polished tannins. The acidity and natural minerality suggest that a bit more bottle age will add extra depth and flesh.
