Murphy-Goode Merlot Alexander Valley 2008
The 2008 vintage boasts flavors and aromas of citrus and tropical fruits expressed over a bright, yet rich mouthfeel. The wine was predominately fermented in stainless steel to retain the fruit aromatics and a portion was barrel fermented to increase the texture of the wine. We also use a clone of Sauvignon Blanc called Sauvignon Musqué to add a hint of orange blossom and tangerine.
This Murphy-Goode Sauvignon Blanc is tart and crisp. The color is pale gold with a touch of green. The smells are of grass and grapefruit. The taste is of meons and grapefruit. The finish is refreshing and vibrant. I paid $8.49 recently.
Aromas of freshly cut grass, citrus, and butter. Tastes of citrus.
This is our go-to grocery store wine.
External Reviews for Murphy-Goode Merlot Alexander Valley
A perky little white wine, dry and dust, with lemon and lime flavors that are boosted by bright acidity. Spreads over the palate with a tart pepperiness, an ideal food wine. It's also a good value.
A style that focuses on the melon aspects of Sauvignon Blanc, while remaining true to the crisp, varietal character that makes this so easy to match with a wide variety of foods.
Intriguing, with complex guava, mineral and toasty notes. It's light-bodied and steely, full of lovely flavors that linger. Drink now through 2003.
Starts with a whiff of matchstick, but there's good depth and concentration to its melon, fig, honeysuckle, grass and tangy citrus flavors. Drink now.
