Food Pairings for Artesa Merlot Napa Valley Limited Release
Tasted at the winery 9/21/09
Cecilie didn't like it, but thought the label looked golden, we all liked that. Gold is good. However, the wine was not as nice as the other one. Jacob wished it was whiskey and was hereafter not taken seriously in the tasting. 63% was from Sonoma and only 37% from Napa, which should have been the other way around. Its kinda' unfair for Napa. Props to David Dobson, a well written description on the back of the bottle, we could not have said it clearer, but have tried anyway on this page. Hints: The green glass can be used as 'flaskepost', and can be fun for children of all ages. Thanks: We would like to give special thanks to whoever put golden arrows pointing towards the cork on the bottle, it really helped us a lot, as we had all had too much to drink before attempting to open this bottle. Pairing: Drink with long car-rides. Warning: 2-year olds WILL throw up if they drink more than three glasses. Remember: you can have fun without drinking - but you can also drink without having fun! Cheers.
Received as a gift and not being a big fan of most merlots ... However !! What a wonderful surprise to find an absolutely amazing delicious merlot ! You will not be disappointed ( if you can find it ).
Beautiful merlot...seriously the best merlot so far for me! Tasted at the winery over the weekend.
Brimming with bright red currant and raspberry. Layers of cinnamon, clove, cigar box, vanilla and chocolate serve as delicious counterpoints to the pervasive berry fruit. A serious wine with excellent color and firm yet silky tannins. In the mouth a wonderfully smooth wine that has a warm comforting silky feeling from start to lingering finish. A splendid acid and soft tannin balance ensure this wine will both go well with food and evolve into a greater wine over the next decade. This is a great merlot.
