Charles Smith Merlot Columbia Valley the Velvet Devil 2007
Velvet: Unbelievably smooth. Devil: How you'll feel after you try it. This is one of the top choices for a lot of different palates. The nose is earth, iodine and red plums. The mouthfeel is full and the taste is 'caramel'. Great choice to serve at a party.
This is the best Merlot that I have ever had! It seems more full bodied that most. Easy, smooth & delicious! I LOVE IT!
Strong, overbearing, bitter taste.
This wine is frankly terrible. It has a really dirty unpleasant nose and on the pallet it is just barely drinkable.. I was very disappointed as this winemaker is supposed to be a good one. Its one step above pouring down the toilet. Don't waste your money on this swill.
plum notes with a light smoky, pepper. Smooth, even velvety. I hadn't thought caramel, before reading another review, but I think that is right. Delish. It was a beautiful choice for a party, to sip. Then I paired it with an exceptionally spicy Masoor Dal, incredible contrast
Great wine for the money, better than some merlot at triple the price.
This is a very smooth Merlot. Wonderful with steak or pizza.
