Pedestal - Best Merlot 2014

"After years of exploring the evolution of Washington wine, we return to the basics. Washington winemakers are gaining more attention for classic wines -- Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Riesling and Chardonnay -- the "noble" grapes that attract excitement and loyalty around the world. This year, our judges focused on the best of these grapes, and the wines we all love. We've also carried on the tradition of honoring some of the outstanding individuals in Washington wine -- those passionate people who make our state a thrilling place for wine, year in and year out."
