Lot 112 Napa County Merlot 2005
Notes: Cameron Confidential: Lot 112 Napa County Merlot represents exceptional value. Sourced from the un-appellated Coombsville and Jamieson Canyon regions (which is why it has the Napa County designation), this wines has the beautiful, supple structure and classic fruit profile of great Napa Merlot (which requires a few minutes of swirling in the glass to get going). Sourced from one of the most-respected wineries in the Napa Valley (where it is sold for $24/bottle), this wine is sure to please those of you who crave merlot or those of you looking for a supple wine with harmonious mouth feel and great character.
I rated this wine a #5 because I think at this price point ($9 bucks) you are really getting your money's worth. Lot 112 Merlot can be found at Costco - a fabulous Napa wine that would be over $30 from any other winery. Grapes sourced from Coombsville and Jamieson Canyon regions. Bright cherry fruit, soft tannins, smooth. After opening an hour it was even better. This wine is worth buying a case - very food friendly. Great entry wine for new red wine drinkers. I love it and it's price.
This is a really nice, really affordable, well made merlot. I especially enjoyed the hint of chocolate on the finish.
External Reviews for Lot 112 Napa County Merlot
Dark, almost blackened crimson color. Aromas of cherry, spice, and chocolate spring from the glass, underpinned by bright fruit notes of strawberries and plums. A supple, rich mouthfeel-coupled with well-integrated oak-presents a complex-yet-smooth Merlot, perfect for that wintertime cocktail party.
