[From "Merlot" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 24 August 2013.]
All right! I am ending Washington wine month with a bang! Tonight I am enjoying a bottle of wine from one of my absolute favorite winemakers, L'Ecole No. 41, this being the 2008 Seven Hills Estate Merlot. I recently ordered half a case of this wine with the idea of cellaring a few bottles for a few years, as I expect this one will age well, but what's the fun in that? I at least have to try a bottle!

A rich dark cherry merlot. Great by itself or given the fresh pepper spices with fajitas or a burger.
Four and a half glasses
Great wine! Excellent with a choice steak.
Three and a half glasses
