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.

Oh so smooth!

Truly enjoyed sipping on this! Smooth and full of flavor. I paired this merlot with just my wine glass! ??

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.

Not your typical Merlot

I was pleasantly surprised by this bottle of wine! It's light, the tannins aren't too overwhelming, and fruit forward. I tried it with dark chocolate but honestly liked it better all on it's own. Definitely will be stocking up on this one!

Smooth and Delicious!

Woodvale Estates really surprised both me and my husband. The tannins weren't overwhelming (I really like to aerate), and the flavors were deep and luscious. The black plum flavors really came through. This was fantastic paired with meatballs and spaghetti.

Perfect

This Merlot is velvety smooth with a little hint of smoke. Perfect for any meat pairing, from steak to burgers to brats. It’s also amazing with Girl Scout Samoa’s

Not your Grandpa’s Merlot

Omgosh... this Merlot is sooo smooth and pairs nicely with a variety of flavors but also pairs exceptionally well just with a wine glass. Woodvale is definitely taking the stigma out of your grandparents’ Merlot HA HA!

Love at first sip!

Wow, I absolutely loved this wine from the first sip! It was my first time having a Merlot from Washington state. Full flavored, lush, smooth - delicious cherry & mint! Ordered 6 bottles right away. :)
