Columbia Crest Merlot-Cabernet, Columbia Valley, 1997

    Classic Bordeaux grape varieties are joined to provide a soft, inviting, medium-bodied wine. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc deliver ripe fruit aromas and a touch of peppercorn spice. Skillful blending and aging in small oak barrels allows this wine to be enjoyed in its youth. 60% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc. Alc. 13.0%/vol.
