External Reviews for Fetzer Merlot California Valley Oaks
You'll first notice a rich, medium Ruby Red color in this Merlot,with aromas of black cherry, cassis, red licorice, plum and a hintof sage, balanced with notes from the oak aging, including vanilla,toffee and toasty oak. The light to medium tannins provide someheft for the wine, easing into a soft structure that offers a wellbalanced wine that's easy to drink. Surprisingly rich flavors ofcherry, vanilla and mocha combine with toasty oak. This is oneof our best vintages of the past few years.
There’s a sense of pride that comes from making wine in a place with a rich history. I think our Mendocino roots show in every glass of our Merlot. It has an easy, approachable style with aromas of ripe plums and flavors of blackberry and cherry. This wine goes great with just about any meal, making it a good choice to have on hand for every day.
