Fetzer Eagle Peak is one of the top selling labels there. THE WINE The Fetzer vineyard is in Mendocino County, California, the most northerly part of this wine producing region. Protected from the coastal fogs by a range of hills, the McDowell valley tends to be warm and dry

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.

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. It's easy to drink and is a nice everyday or party type wine.

Appealing for its black cherry and roasted coffee aromas and spicy, easygoing flavors. Drink now.

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