Black cherry and cedar aroma and flavors. The palate offers some spice. Pair with a grilled steak.
|Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A smooth little devil! Bright garnet in the glass, with aromas of vanilla, cherry, and baking spices, and a lingering spicy finish.
|Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A surprisingly ripe Merlot from Washington state, with plum, blackberry, leather, and vanilla. A medium-bodied, velvety delight. Drinkable wine that is not too tannic, so it can go with lighter pasta dishes and soft cheeses.
|Alexandre Craig DWS, FWS rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A very typical Washington Merlot, with abundant aromas of baked plums, sweet baking spices and gingerbread. A rich, opulent mouthfeel is completed with a dense, long finish.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A lovely plush Merlot. Aromas include dark ripe plums and berries, along with some spice (clove?) and some minerality. Flavours mingle nicely and are balanced by a bit of oak. Smooth, and easy drinking, with a longer finish. Would pair with a wide variety of braised or roasted meat dishes.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
The Velvet Devil had me at hello with it's 2013 vintage of Washington State cold climate Merlot. Ruby red, 13.5?V. On the nose this wine offers graphite minerality, cassis, blueberry and mirrored on the palate. The vineyard professes terroir to bottle in the "Land to Hand and Vineyard to Bottle" expression. Recommend as a crowd pleaser, great for celebrating. Enjoy now.
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Plum, vanilla, and clove on the nose, palate has plum and a hint of smoke. An easy drinking wine.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Not a ton of aroma... Vanilla and plum. A touch of smoke. Light and simple.
