Winemaker's Notes:

The dark red color, cherry fruit and warm, smoky toast flavors apparent in this wine are all trademark descriptors for Washington Merlot. This blend is attractively fruity with a medium-ruby color.

This Merlot pairs well with grilled beef tenderloin, mushroom risotto, duck ragu over polenta and other rich, hearty fare.

My Notes:

About Covey Run:

Since the release of the 1982 vintage, Covey Run has crafted high quality, price worthy wines from Washington’s Columbia River Valley, wines that have been embraced by consumers and journalists alike earning over 20 Wine Spectator Best Values awards. Led by winemaker Kate Michaud, Covey Run's portfolio includes delicious wines for every occasion, from stylish entertaining, to casual gatherings and picnics with family and friends.

Covey Run wines benefit from the long, sunny days and cool nights of eastern Washington vineyards. The whites are distinguished by crisp acidity and fresh fruit flavors, while the reds are aged in oak that never masks, but rather complements, the bold fruit flavors.
