Let me start by saying that I am a huge Merlot fan when it is done right and this Walla Walla Merlot produced by Skylite Cellars is one of my favorites! With a hypnotic bouquet of hedonistic, fleshy, dark fruit and an undertone of refined thick earth that seduces you into the glass, this Merlot is dense, powerful and majestic. Once in the mouth, this gargantuan wine is unrelenting with flavors of tobacco, strawberry, luscious plum and blackberry that is so thick and flavorful it makes me lick my lips relentlessly with joy. I am truly astonished by the fact that this full bodied wine is so balanced with sleek, long tannin and a fairytale finish that makes me smile openly without regret. Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
