Dumas Station Merlot 2012
|Appellation||Walla Walla Valley|
Wine EnthusiastRarely does a Merlot in this price range display this much power and concentration. Sourced from several vineyards, it's ripe right to the border of raisin flavors, with generous dollops of maple syrup and brown sugar adding further complexity. Still fruit-driven, yet with plenty of barrel flavor, this massive Merlot can take your richest, tangiest barbecue sauce.
Wine SpectatorRipe and generous, with expressive black cherry and roasted red pepper flavors, coming together on the exuberant finish. Has intensity and depth. Best from 2016 through 2020. 250 cases made.
