Friday Tasting - MERF & "The Burn" @ Water Street Wines & Spirits
We’ll be pouring 2 wines this afternoon: A Chardonnay from Merf Wines, and “The Burn” Cabernet Sauvignon from Borne of Fire. Two excellent Columbia Valley wines from Washington State. Come try and compare to the California Cab & Chardfrom last week!
“MERF stands for something. More importantly, someone: David ‘Merf’ Merfeld. His journey from Iowa family farmer to Washington winemaker started in brewing, with some interesting detours along the way.
Merf believes in honest, hard work and that’s ingrained in these bottles of American craftsmanship. His wine is something to be discovered, tasted and enjoyed with friends.”
90% Cab & 10% Malbec, “The Burn” is a reclaimed part of Columbia Valley’s growing region “named from legends of early settlers who set fire to the land in the fall to replenish and rejuvenate the grasslands for their horses in the spring”. This Cabernet received 96 Points from James Suckling, 91 Points from Wine & Spirits Magazine, and 90 Points from!
