The name Dynamite Vineyards is atribute to our beginnings on rocky slopes that are so rugged we had to blast through rock to plant vaneyards.

Had this with my wife tonight with bone-in filets. We were not terribly impressed. Has a bit of a strong alcohol taste and was not very smooth. My wife asked me to put it on our "do not order" list.
This is not my favorite year (2006) for Dynamite Merlot. I can't wait until my store gets rid of the 2006 and starts selling the 2007 Merlot. It could only be better.

A blend of several varietals, our 2006 Dynamite Red Wine weaves ripe black fruit with forward oak character in an intricate layering of complex aromas and flavors. Juicy boysenberry and blueberry deve
On the nose, the Merlot shows aromas of black cherry, blueberry, currant and toast. Flavors of dark fruits and cherries are accompanied by hints of dark chocolate and vanilla. Medium on the palate, this Merlot has light, ripe tannins and a long finish. - Winery
This wine from Dynamite Vineyards is a little different and a lot fabulous! Instead of focusing on a single varietal like in their other wines, Winemaker Bob Masyczek put together a blend of grapes, primarily from Napa and Sonoma that really makes a statement. 59% Merlot, 13% Syrah, 12% Zinfandel, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petite Sirah, 2% Malbec, 1.5%Cabernet Franc and 1.5% Petit Verdot aged 18 months in French and American oak. The flavors are layed and multi-dimensionla with ripe berry fruit and live exotic spice. Don’t miss this while it ON SALE!!!
Wine Tasting NotesOn the nose, the Merlot shows aromas of black cherry, blueberry, currant and toast. Flavors of dark fruits and cherries are accompanied by hints of dark chocolate and vanilla. Medium on the palate, this Merlot has light, ripe tannins and a long finish. Perfect with leg of lamb, steak and rich stews, this wine also pairs well with richer pasta dishes.
