Sagelands Vineyard-2012-Merlot BottleBest Buy! Wallula Vineyard, one of the Northwest’s most breathtaking sites, is factoring into more Precept wines, and its Horse Heaven Hills influence shows in the abundance of dusty minerality in this inexpensive Merlot. There’s also little oak to get in the way of this presentation of black cherry, black currant and blueberry jam. The structure is quaffable as tamed tannins and easy acidity allow for a finish of cherry juice and earthiness.
