Professional Wine Reviews for Wines Of Substance Super Substance Merlot Stoneridge 2014

Rated 94 by Wine Advocate
Another sensational Merlot is the 2014 Merlot Stoneridge Vineyard, which also comes from the Wahluke Slope AVA in the middle of the state. This is a warm (hot) and dry terroir that consists of sandy loam and gravelly soils. Plums, Asian spices, graphite and dried flower-like characteristics all emerge from this beauty that is layered, medium to full-bodied, concentrated and textured.
Rated 91 by Vinous Media
Bright, dark red-ruby. Sexy rose petal lift to the aromas of currant, black cherry, dark chocolate and vanillin oak. Quite rich but surprisingly tight and imploded; less sweet than the Vineyard Collection Cabernet Sauvignon from the same vineyard and more savory and soil-driven. Intriguing, fine-grained Merlot with lovely length and subtle sweetness. The tannins spread out to saturate the palate. (Vinous)

Winery Wines Of Substance

Region: Washington State

Washington state is a fascinating region when it comes to American wine production, with the majority of their produce coming out of the desert-like eastern half of the state. This expansive region has a unique climate produced by the rain shadow of the Cascade mountain range, and here we find over ninety-nine percent of the state's vineyards which hold a wide range of classic grape varietals including Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and others. Today, there are over forty thousand acres in Washington under vine, and the industry of the state is going from strength to strength due to the increasing popularity of the wines which are produced here. Over six hundred wineries in the state take advantage of the well irrigated vineyards which flourish there, and these numbers are expected to grow quickly over the next decade.

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.
