washington-hills-merlot-bottleBest Buy! Four of Precept Wine’s workhorse vineyard sources — A&R, Frenchman Hills, Oasis and Otis — under the direction of Hal Landvoigt combine for a food-friendly and consumer-minded Merlot that’s easy to like. There’s a core of dark purple fruit aromas along with white pepper and cedar. Inside, it’s rich and dark with black cherry, Damson plum and black currant with full mouth feel. A backing of pomegranate and light chocolate allows the juicy approach to persist through a delicious finish.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 2,376 cases

Alcohol: 13.5%

    I was just visiting family in a small village in England and spotted this at the local Co-op. Of course I had to get a couple bottles and it was very very good.
