Impresses for its dryness and elegance. Feels smooth and polished in the mouth, with complicated flavors of currants, herbs, anise, pepper and sandalwood, wrapped into firm but fine tannins. Easy to find, with 312,000 cases produced.

Simple red cherry and berry flavors last in this smooth-textured merlot, a clean red for roast beef.

Blended with Carignane and Syrah, allegedly in order to enhance the mouthfeel, acid, and body of the wine, the 2002 Fetzer Merlot (sporting an attractive new label, might I add) is dark purple in color with flavors of ripe plum, blackberry jam and spicy clove.

A beautiful marriage of red fruit and sweet oak dominate this wine. The palate is rounded out with hints of clove, cedar and cola. Take advantage of the instant gratification mdash; drink now with pasta dishes or by itself.

How Fetzer can produce 300,000 cases of this wine, at this price, is a testament to the fine art of blending. This is a smooth, polished, dry Merlot with cherry, vanilla and spice flavors. Itrsquo;s easy to drink and is a nice everyday or party type wine.

Fetzer as much as anyone in America is responsible for quaffable, inexpensive vin ordinaire, and this fine Merlot is the latest example. Itrsquo;s dry and balanced, with a polished richness that belies the everyday price.

Blended with Carignane and Syrah, allegedly in order to enhance the mouthfeel, acid, and body of the wine, this rendition of the ever-popular Eagle Peak Merlot is dark purple in color with flavors of ripe plum, blackberry jam and spicy clove.
