Warr-King Wines 2017 Weinbau Vineyard Merlot, Wahluke Slope, $40

By on February 7, 2022

This Woodinville Warehouse District producer is on the rise, having won four Platinums in the past four years and the product of Washington State University’s certificate program turned these two barrels of Merlot from historic Weinbau Vineyard into Platinum. The fanciful nose of cherry Fruit Stripe gum, plum and Tea Rose eau de toilette transcend into a plummy palate with black currant, mint and white pepper ahead of the Marionberry juice that imparts a clean finish. Awards: Sunset International (best of class/gold).

Rating: Platinum, 91 points

Production: 46 cases

Alcohol: 14.3%
