2019 Le Colosse
YAKIMA VALLEY AVA
The three vineyards that make up the 2019 Le Colosse exemplify how delicious Washington State Merlot can be. Boushey Vineyard brings an earthy, brambly character that dominates in the wines’ youth. Red currant, Bing cherry, and dried sage are offered up by Harrison Hill Vineyard, with chalky structure, blue fruits, and seductive richness present thanks to Dubrul Vineyard. This wine is yet another example of a long-standing theme at the winery - its whole being greater than the sum of its parts. This charmer exudes freshness on release and will only benefit from the tertiary flavors that time will allow.
