Winemaker Notes

The 2010 vintage has rich concentrated aromas of black cherry, raspberry and cream that lead into flavors of clove, cinnamon and maple. It is a subtle and soft with a lingering toasted oak finish. This wine was created to enjoy now, or for many years to come as it will age gracefully.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Merlot Columbia Valley gives up a fabulous perfume of ripe black fruits, plum, asphalt, licorice, tar and assorted meatiness to go with a full-bodied, seamless and elegant feel on the palate. A blend of 70% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Petit Verdot that spent 18 months in 95% French oak (57% new). it opens up beautifully in the glass, has building tannin and a great finish. It will continue to shine through 2025.

Northstar
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.
