    Tasting Notes
    Washington state is recognized as the home of world-class Merlot, and Columbia Valley is one of its top vineyard regions. The valley’s south-facing slopes, glacial soils and generous sunlight produce characteristically intense flavors.

    This Kirkland Signature 2012 Columbia Valley Merlot is equal to the task, delivering a wine with round tannins and an underpinning of spicy oak. Enjoy notes of black cherry, cassis and blackberry with a lingering finish of sweet plum.

    Composition
    • Varietal: 100% Merlot
    • Region: Columbia Valley, WA
    • Alcohol Content: 14.5%

    Vineyards and Vintages
    The Columbia Valley AVA lies mostly in Washington state, encompassing valleys formed by the Columbia River and its tributaries.

    The weather in 2012 caused the grapes to mature beautifully. The flavor profile and tannin development is exceptional. Sunny skies and warm fall daytime temperatures, coupled with cool nighttime temperatures, produced completely ripened fruit with striking flavors and juicy acidity.
