Helix 2012 "Stillwater Creek" Merlot, WA

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)
Price: $28
KWG Score: 90
No. Professional Ratings: 2
# of Cases: 790
This midnight purple colored Merlot from Washington State open with a wet stone and faint plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and juicy. The flavor profile is very European in style. It displays a mineral infused black olive flavors with notes of black plum. The finish is dry and has nice length for a Merlot. I would pair it with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken
