Wine Reviews --> Merlot --> Waterbrook Reserve Merlot 2011

Waterbrook Reserve Merlot 2011 Columbia Valley, Washington

Suggested Retail: $24, We Bought a Bunch: $19.99

I continue to believe that some of the best Merlot in the world is being made in Washington... here is more proof!

What the Wine Critics Thought: Wine Spectator: 91 Points
The cinnamon-accented red berry flavors play against meaty notes in this taut, juicy red, with a lingering finish. Offers presence and persistence. Best from 2015 through 2019. –HS

What We Thought: Aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry, blackberry and notes chocolate define this classic Washington Merlot, the medium-bodied palate is supported by ultra-supple tannins that make it an easy drinker.
