Mercer Estates 2010 Sharp Sisters Red Blend, Columbia Valley, $24

By on April 29, 2014

mercer-estates-sharp-sisters-red-2010-labelThis proud Horse Heaven Hills family developed a blend of Merlot (50%), Syrah (34%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Petit Verdot as a tribute to its late Carma Sharp-Mercer and her sisters. The theme of blackberry, chocolate-covered blueberry, currants, rose petal and vanilla gives this wide appeal. Underneath, it shows juicy and bold acidity, a light hand with oak and gentle tannins.
