Winexpert LE22 Washington Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
A classic combination. Robust Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure and black fruit flavors while complimentary Merlot softens Cab’s high tannin and acidity and adds juicy fruit and texture. The result is a beautiful blend showing aromas of black currant with hints of dried herb and toasted almond. The palate is stacked with layers of deep cherry, black fruit, baking spice, and mocha. A concentrated and seamless blend with silky tannin.
Sweetness: Dry | Body: Medium-Full | Oak: Medium | Alcohol: 13.5% ABV
About the blend and region:
Walla Walla, Washington
Walla Walla sits on Washington’s southern border, dipping slightly into Oregon. Cab and Merlot are widely planted here, where the long growing season allows these grapes to reach optimal ripeness. Hot days develop ripe fruit flavors while cool nights help lock in acidity, keeping fruit in focus. Cab grown here is known for being fruitier and less astringent and the Merlot shows a more boisterous body and rich fruitiness.
