Not a bad Merlot.. Very dry and lacks a bit of the fruitiness that many French Merlots exhibit, but for the price, this is a dry Merlot with a nice long finish that beats a normal French table wine. I wouldn't serve it to guests, but it is great with dinner on one of those normal days of life.

I didn't love this wine. I decided to try it because of the awards it boasted on the label but it is VERY dry and has a long finish. It has a smoky flavor. Overall I think there are better merlots in this price range.

The merlot is very dry, with an extra-long finish. A strong scent of rubbing alcohol initially, goes away after letting it stand for several minutes. Smoky flavor - definitely no fruit. Went OK with meatballs in a mild tomato w/red chili (no spice) sauce. Tolerable, though nothing I would ever buy myself (was a bday present from a relative - not sure if they like me or not!)

Bright ruby. Moderately light-bodied. Balanced acidity. Subtly extracted. heavily oaked. Mildly tannic. Cedar, brown sugar, red fruits. highly aromatic with a woody accent. light with juicy acidity and bright berry flavors. Lingering finish with some astringence.

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.

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

Lively and easy to drink, with cherry and spice aromas and soft raspberry and toasty herb flavors. Drink now.

Wine Tasting NotesDark purple in color with a nose of blackberry jam melded with creamy vanilla aromas, a touch of tobacco, spicy clove and cinnamon. The wine is rich in the mouth, with smooth tannins and rich, ripe plum and berry flavors. The finish is long and fruit-filled, with the perfect amount of toasty oak spice. This wine is perfect for enjoying upon release and for the next 4-5 years.

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.
