External Reviews for Delicato Family Vineyards Gnarly Head Merlot
Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Now, we cannot honestly say that we expect all that much from an $11.00 Merlot, but this bottling surprises by being fruity and focused with a dash of sweet oak accenting its themes of ripe cherries. It is clean as can be and very smooth on the palate, and, if it makes no claims to depth or complexity, it is a thoroughly likeable wine that gets thumbs up for value.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
