Winemaker Notes

The 2012 vintage has rich concentrated aromas of cherry, raspberry and chocolate that lead into flavors of cedar and vanilla with a lingering toasted oak finish. This highly structured wine was created to enjoy now, or for many years to come as it will age gracefully.

Blend: 82% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
The cocoa, cherry, raspberry and toast aromas bring plenty of appeal. The flavors deliver richness but without excessive weight.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The deep ruby colored Columbia Valley 2012 Merlot is a full-bodied, elegant, perfumed Merlot that gives up lots of cassis, sweet oak, black cherry and a touch of crushed rock in the hallmark elegant, balanced style of this estate. The tannin is present, yet ripe, and it has enough concentration to keep for a decade or more.

Northstar Northstar vineyards and winery Winery Image

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.
