Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Mar 2013)
The Northstar 2008 Merlot Walla Walla - blended with a bit more Petit Verdot and less Cabernet Franc than usual - delivers lightly cooked dark cherry and plum dusted with diverse dried green herbs, smoky Latakia tobacco, nutmeg and cinnamon. Glycerol-rich, expansive, and with admirably fine-grained tannins, it finishes with sappy, vigorous intensity, primary juiciness complemented by piquant, low-toned nuttiness as well as the persistence of herb and spice. This handsome offering strikes me as likely to be worth following for another half-dozen years. (Tasted alongside, a rather rancid component and drying tannins from barrel rendered Northstar’s 2007 Merlot Walla Walla disappointing and, by my lights, wanting to be drunk up soon.)

Wine maker notes
Embodying the very best of the Walla Walla Valley, this Merlot reflects our home appellation’s unique geography and geology.
