2013 Woodward Canyon Merlot Columbia Valley
"(from Weinbau and Woodward Canyon vineyards; aged in tight-grained French oak, 40% new and a sizable percentage from made by Taransaud; bottled in August of 2015): Bright, dark red-ruby. Youthful scents of cassis, dark cherry, minerals, bitter chocolate and flowers; I might have picked this blind as Cabernet. At once broad and vinous, offering classically dry flavors of Bing cherry, blackcurrant, tobacco leaf and licorice. Mott sometimes adds a bit of Cabernet to flesh out the middle palate of this Merlot, but not in 2014. Finishes with suave tannins and excellent length but this tight wine is still a baby."
