Covey Run Merlot

2010 Crisp in texture, dense in flavor, with layers of ripe blackberry, currant and peppery spice flavors that have more up front than on the spicy, fresh cedar finish. The dark red color, cherry fruit and warm, smoky toast flavors apparent in this wine are all trademark descriptors for Washington Merlot. This blend is attractively fruity with a medium-ruby color and is well suited to be served as a companion to good cuisine.
$18.00 / Bottle   $216.00 / Case

Additional Information

Since 1982, Covey Run has crafted a broad range of award-winning wines – including 20 “Best Value” awards from Wine Spectator magazine – from prized vineyards in the renowned Columbia and Yakima Valley appellations of Eastern Washington State. Sheltered from storms by the rainshadow effect exerted by the majestic Cascade Mountain Range, conditions in these high desert regions are ideal for cultivating world-class wine grapes. Warm, sunny days and extended sunlight hours (due to Washington’s northern latitude) develop intense flavors in Covey Run's classic European grape varieties, while cool nights ensure they retain high levels of acidity.

Covey Run winemaker Kate Michaud transforms this pristine fruit into a broad range of consistently superior wines that embody Washington State’s unique characteristics while meeting and surpassing international standards of excellence.

Kate crafts two tiers of outstanding Covey Run varietals: Quail Series and Columbia Valley Reserve. Quail Series provides discerning wine drinkers with high-quality Washington State wines for everyday enjoyment. They’re varietally distinctive, fruit-forward, easy-drinking and ideal for casual meals. With great vineyards, a talented winemaker and a bevy of vividly flavored, beautifully structured wines, Covey Run truly offers the best of Washington State.
