    June 30, 2015 - Get's better with each bottle. Aging nicely. Probably has another 2-3 years. Beautiful nose and fruit.

    February 17, 2014 - Totally charming and powerfully structured. Very pretty nose, Cabernet Sauvignon like palate. Great mouthfeel and sturdy grip. This wine stole the show at a Mackey tasting; only the winery's Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon equaled it in quality, power, and charm. A top notch Merlot!

    May 10, 2013 - Bright cherry with a hint of oak and earth. Medium body with a voluptuous, sexy mouthfeel. There are no noticeable tannins on the medium finish. This is a really solid wine for the price.

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    9/21/2012 (link) **** 1/2 points

    (Mackey Vineyards Merlot Columbia Valley) Leaps up from the glass with abundant aromas of raspberries, red currant, and milk chocolate. The palate has chewy red fruit flavors and plump, ripe tannins. A thoroughly delicious expression of Washington Merlot. 100% Merlot. DuBrul and Dionysus vineyards. Aged 23 months in French oak (70% new). 14.8% alcohol. 165 cases produced
