Peju Province Winery Merlot Napa Valley 2005
In the glass, this 2005 Merlot shows deep hues of crimson and cranberry. Enjoy the aromas of ripe bramble berries, brown sugar and cocoa with hints of toasty oak and allspice. Bing cherries and vanilla bean dance in the mouth while the balanced mid-palate gives way to soft yet firm tannins.
This wine just felt out of balance to me. Maybe a bad bottle?
Not a huge merlot fan, but this had a very nice flavor. But not a true merlot fan.
I just returned from a trip to SF/Marin county. While on our trip we decided to take a drive up to Napa.Throughout our day in Napa we visited several vineyards for tastings and tours, one of which was Peju. I am not a big Merlot drinker but after tasting this wine I bought a bottle. Very smooth, very nice on the pallet. Decent wine for the money
