Somewhat a victim of its own success, Merlot was overplanted and overproduced in the 90's and 00's. When the movie Sideways came along and created the Pinot Noir craze by bashing Merlot, it brought about a reckoning for producers of the varietal. Most stopped growing the grape and producing the wine. Today, if a grower still grows Merlot, you know they are doing it because it is very good. And that's the case with this one. A touch softer, this wine has nice red fruit flavors and softer tannins. Blended with Cabernet for additional complexity.
