Overview

Mystic Wines Columbia Valley 2001 Merlot is a classic with wild blackberry and vanilla oak spice lending mature fruit flavours to the soft yet solid balance and lingering finish. Mystic Wines was started in Oregon by Rick Mafit in 1992. Rick spent the 80's making wine in California's Sonoma and Mendocino counties and came north eager to find sites where big flavor reds would thrive. After scouring the state he found The Dalles region (Columbia Valley) in the Columbia Gorge near the Washington Border. This area has a longer growing season and the heat necessary to fully ripen Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Barbera, and Zinfandel varieties.
