2018 LONG SHADOWS PEDESTAL COLUMBIA VALLEY MERLOT
After two decades of building the Chateau Ste. Michelle brand and its affiliate wineries to international recognition, Washington wine icon Allen Shoup ventured into a new concept aimed at elevating Washington wines by bringing in renowned international winemakers to create super-premium wines. Allen hired ambitious French native Gilles Nicault to be the Director of Winemaking of his newest creation, Long Shadows, because of Gille’s knowledge and flexibility to help the consulting winemakers create their masterpieces.
World-renowned winemaker Michel Rolland consults for the Long Shadows Pedestal Columbia Valley Merlot, providing the vision for this wine from his hometown of Saint-Émilion, also home to some of the variety’s most famous producers. The 2018 Pedestal is 82% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Malbec, hand-harvested after an ideal autumn with cool nights giving the grapes a long hang-time to reach full ripeness without losing acidity for an outstanding balance and layers of indulgent flavors.
