It has been some time since I have had Desert Wind Wines, and after having their Wahluke Slope Merlot last night; I realize it has been way too long. This well-lined Merlot offers huge amounts of deep concentrated dark fruit accompanied by entrancing flavors of vanilla extract, smoke and tad of Right Bank Bordeaux earthiness. With full, smooth lingering tannin, this gargantuan Merlot should be paired with wild game or a rich beef dish. One of my favorite Merlots to date and can’t wait to taste all of Desert Wind’s awesome wines! Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
