Jones of Washington 2012 Wahluke Slope Estate Vineyards Merlot, Wahluke Slope, $15

Jones of Washington-2012-MerlotBest Buy! The wizardry of Wahluke Slope winemaker Victor Palencia continues with this complex, robust, affordable and food-friendly Washington Merlot. Aromas of black currant and red cherry are joined by a whiff of cured meat, light toast and rich red pizza sauce with Italian seasoning. It’s a mouthfilling drink of cherry juice and cassis capped by tantalizing acidity, cola and oregano.
