Pair that spring chinook salmon with a Spokane merlot

Wondering what to pair with char-grilled chinook salmon this spring?

The Pacific Northwest staple, also called king salmon, goes well with at least one wine from Spokane, according to Eric Degerman and Andy Perdue.

In an April 23 story on Wine Press Northwest, they recommend Arbor Crest Wine Cellars 2011 Four Vineyards Merlot, which retails for $18.

The merlot "sings with aromas of cherry and plum while gathering up milk chocolate and black pepper. Bright flavors form a melody of black cherry, boysenberry and cranberry amid a structure of smooth tannins and pomegranate acidity."
