Woodvale Estates Merlot

2016 – Medium bodied red wine

Barely translucent garnet-to-brick on the edge only; medium body. Nose of toast and forest floor, integrated with subtly woody plums, cherry, and black tea. Integrated and accessible; good weight and structure with a smooth, balanced feel and good length of flavors and finish. Mature extraction supported plum and cherry flavors are tamed by the
Merlot's age—ready to drink now.

Absolutely delicious!

I've never been a huge Merlot wine drinker but Woodvale Estates Merlot is absolutely perfect. It's got a nice balance of fruitiness and earthiness. Not only does it pair nicely with BBQ chips and meatballs, but it also compliments my wine glass. It's definitely a wine I'll be ordering more of.

Smooth as silk

The dark fruits balance perfectly with the softest tannins. I will definitely be ordering more!

What I’ve Waited For!

It has been so long since I had a Merlot, probably since I started drinking reds. This one has put Merlot on my list of favorites! So smooth, just the right wine to sip after a long work day.

Silky Smooth

I am a big Merlot lover and this one blew me away! It's light, and fruit forward and so smooth. We had it with Eggplant Parmesan and the pairing was simply amazing. Personally I love this one all by itself, great to sip on by the fire pit while relaxing in the backyard. I will definitely be stocking up on this wine.

Phenomenal!

I'm not usually a huge Merlot fan but this wine is phenomenal! It is so smooth and flavorful! The bottle was 'accidently' polished off the day our family opened it.

I guess I do like Merlot!

I am falling in love with wines from WA State! Woodvale Estates is my new go to wine. It has tons of flavor! Lots of fruit and oh soo smooth, with a special something.
