Winemaker Notes

Rich plum and berry aromas combine with toasty oak to offer a heady hint of whats to come in this enticing Merlot most notable for its big, fruity style. Tannins are well balanced and the richness of the variety comes through on the middle and back palate. Look for a hint of black cherry from the Cabernet. This finish is long and smooth.

Northstar, Columbia Valley, Washington
Image of winery

Northstar, located in Walla Walla, Washington, aims to make Merlots that can be considered among the world's best, using fruit sourced from one of the world's best regions for the variety: Washington state. Winemaker, David "Merf" Merfeld, blends New World fruit with an old world winemaking style, influenced by Bordeaux's "right bank," to create his highly-acclaimed wines. Northstar produces two Merlot-based wines from the Columbia Valley and Walla Walla AVAs, as well as the Stella Maris red blend and extremely limited production bottlings of the blending component varieties that Merf uses as his "spice box" in creating Northstar's Merlots.
