    • Northstar's Columbia Valley Merlot draws from numerous vineyards and individual vineyard blocks from around the entire appellation, which provides our winemaker a broad palate of flavors and textures and helps ensure a consistency in style despite variation in growing season from year to year. The emphasis is always on the bright cherry fruit that gives Washington Merlot its immediate appeal. Special fermentation and barrel aging regimes help provide the wine with a mouthfilling texture, and the ability to age gracefully for years to come.
