Killer bordeaux-blend Merlot. If you see this bottle at less than $25 it's a steal since it's $30 at the winery. Great wine-and makes you almost happy Merlot has gotten a bad rep-since the prices are lower now!

Winemaker's Notes:

A tiny splash of Malbec in a great vintage for Merlot makes this an extraordinary wine. When you taste this you'll probably say "I LOVE Merlot"! Michel-Schlumberger, Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma County, California) Merlot 2002 ($30): Evocative spicy/woodsy notes of bay leaf, laurel, and cedar are among the appealing attributes of this Merlot. It's lean, even a little tight right now, with none of that California fluffiness that characterizes so many Golden State Merlots, but it will probably start softening and broadening out in a couple of years. Meanwhile it's got a small cult following of fans who admire its restrained yet attractive personality. Fewer than 2000 cases of this vintage were produced.
