Milbrandt Vineyards Traditions Merlot 2012 Columbia Valley, Washington State


My Rating 83 Points. 
Price $15.

Dark/ black in color with a deep purple rim.

Soft nose of blackberries, currants, oak, vanilla, earth, licorice and black pepper.
Full bodied with medium acidity and great legs.

Earthy on the palate with blackberries, cherries, currants, metals, cloves, dirt, pencil led and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins, spices and black pepper.

Nice for $6 at happy hour, not more though. Paired it with burger sliders and great company. Nice, bold and enjoyable.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
