April 6: 2010: Tasting Northwest Merlot
By Wine Press Northwest
We chat with David "Merf" Merfeld, winemaker for Northstar Winery in Walla Walla, Wash. Northstar is a Ste. Michelle Wine Estates property whose focus is on high-quality Merlot. Merf was a judge for Wine Press Northwest's big Merlot judging, which included 155 wines from Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Idaho. He talks about his impressions from the judging and on the state of Merlot in general.
