The 2008 Pedestal Merlot comes from Washington State's Columbia Valley, an acclaimed American Viticultural Area that lies in the Columbia River Plateau through much of central and southern Washington. The 2008 Pedestal Merlot has vibrant flavors of fresh blackberries, currants and ripe red fruits that are framed by notes of toasted oak and bittersweet chocolate. It's dark and rich with great concentration and texture. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar says the 2008 Pedestal Merlot is perhaps the best vintage to date for this bottling.
