Lot 791 | 2017 Columbia Valley
An astonishingly gorgeous Meritage shiner from some of the best talent in all of Washington state.
Free Ground Shipping on all orders of 12 or more bottles.
Showing excellent extraction and long legs, Lot 791 opens with a nose of dark cherries expertly interwoven with graphite, plum paste, wet stones, and crushed florals. A deftly balanced wine is on full display as it hits the palate, showcasing plenty of small, grippy tannins that introduce a kiss of barrel-influenced spice. The finish is welcomingly long, carrying on forever with resonant cassis, raspberry, wood-flecked vanilla, and warm fresh-baked banana bread. A shining example of what Washington has to offer.

Nice aroma of coffee and spices. Nice big mouthfeel with nice tannins. Red fruit, mineral subtle oak. Well balanced wine that opens up.

Acidic and Amazing
Great wine! I love the acidity and earthy flavors. It was surprisingly good for a meritage. Although it was more expensive than I expected, it had great flavors.
Sumptuous red blend
A full-bodied, sumptuous, bold and rich red blend. This is the essence of a big red, but nicely balanced, velvety and smooth, with string tannins and a long finish. This is a great example of the best qualities of Washington reds. This is substantial enough to stand up to steaks and red meat, but very drinkable on its own as well.
I opened this after a recent trip to Walla Walla in Columbia Valley to compare against the wine we had there. For the price point, I think this wine holds its own against wines 2-3x more expensive from the same region. I'm glad I bought several bottles!
Bold and spicy
Delicious spicy bold red blend with a deep rich color and long finish. Ordered a few times and will order again
This is one of best for the cost. Smooth drinking wine, well balanced. Great with a steak.
Very good Meritage, glad we spent a little extra on it. This is one that we’ll keep for ourselves and special dinners.
One of my favorite Cam Hughes wines
This wine was delicious at the first sip and even better after opening up for an hour. I'd give it 5 stars on taste but the price is a bit steep for what you get so overall 4-stars. Would definitely buy it again!
A classic Columbia valley wine. Smooth and elegant. Velvety on the palate, with a full mouth feel. Allow to breathe for about an hour after opening.
Nice wine. Bold. Full bodied. Easy to drink
