People. If you are not at least experimenting with Washington state merlot yet, you're doing yourself a terrific disservice. Regular readers already know of my prediction: The Columbia Valley will be the epicenter for this maligned grape's redemption. To whit, this terrific value:
2013 Boomtown Merlot Columbia Valley $17
Honest to goodness merlot, made well and framed by a structure that carries its middleweight with deftness. Thoroughly enjoyable with either a hearty meal or genuine conversation. A repeat buy for sure.
