Mirassou Winery Mirassou California Merlot 2007
The Mirassou California Merlot displays luscious fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry. These primary flavors are augmented with secondary flavors of vanilla, toasty oak and brown spices. The addition of Zinfandel and Syrah varietals contribute to a full-bodied mouth feel and lingering, smooth finish. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to three years if carefully cellared. Finished Wine Offering fresh fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry, balanced with elegant toasty aromas and hints of spice, Mirassou California Merlot is a bright expression of California's most celebrated growing regions
For over 150 years the Mirassou family has crafted uniquely expressive wines made with equal parts optimism and California sunshine. Sharing the gift and joy of winemaking has been the Mirassou family's great privilege for six generations, and it continues today. Learn more about the Mirassou Winery by visiting www.mirassou.com

This is a simple red wine to have with dinner at home. A good value and worth picking up for everyday drinking.
Surprise taste. Full bodied with taste of cherries and mocha. Nice finish.
An average wine, but quite good for the price. I don't get a whole lot on the nose, but the dark cherry flavor is quite good. A good wine for many cheeses (I drank it with a mellow brie).
Not horrible, a little on the heavy side, syrupy.
A good wine that has appeal to a wide range of tastes.
Bought a bottle locally. It's rich, full and perfect with a thick Omaha steak.
