Light in texture, with an open weave to the silky raspberry and coffee flavors, finishing with surprising refinement. Drink now.
The newest release of Two Vines Merlot-Cabernet is from the outstanding 2005 vintage, and is easily their best since 2002. Dusty, toasty and bone dry, this excellent budget red includes a little Cabernet Franc in the blend. Along with the supple berry-flavored fruit, there are pleasing grace notes of spice, coffee and cocoa.

How amazing it is to find a wine of this caliber, with some nice age on it, selling at this price. There is plenty of color, and scents of bramble, cherry, tobacco, ash, bark and smoke. In short, this is a party wine, smooth and delicious, with generous cherry, blueberry and raspberry fruit, ripe tannins and perfectly balanced acids. Put this into a blind tasting with some $30 Bordeaux blends from elsewhere, and you are sure to amaze your friends.
Smooth and velvety, with predominant notes of roasted green pepper and green olive, finishing with just a touch of berry fruit. Drink now through 2008.
This is the second vintage of their popular Merlot/Cabernet, a blend of 59% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, and 19% Cabernet Sauvignon. Black cherry and raspberry aromas are arranged nicely with mocha and sweet coconut. Similar flavors repeat on the palate where they are joined by spice and peppercorn. A mouth-filling and engaging wine with a lingering finish.
The blend is half Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. A rich nose shows sweet, black cherry fruit; the wine has got big flavors that are nonetheless pretty, with soft, understated tannins and high acids. It adds up to a very accessible, delicious bottle of red.
