A brief history

Northstar, located in Walla Walla, Washington, is dedicated to creating world-class Merlots from one of the world’s best regions for Merlot: Washington State. Blending New World fruit with an Old World winemaking style, influenced by Bordeaux’s “right bank,” Northstar winemaker David “Merf” Merfeld creates Merlots that are among the most highly acclaimed in the world. Northstar produces three wines: our flagship Columbia Valley Merlot; the limited production Walla Walla Merlot, which showcases local vineyards; and Stella Maris, a Columbia Valley red wine blended from wines made for Northstar Merlot but ultimately not selected for the final blend due to stylistic considerations.

The 2014 vintage has rich concentrated aromas of raspberry, plum, mint, cedar, and chocolate that lead into flavors of nutmeg and vanilla. The wine is big and bold and was created to enjoy now, or for many years to come as it will age gracefully.
