Member Review by Stallion:

Not a bad easy drinking Merlot. Decent nose and easy on the palate.

Red Rock Winery:
Over the past decade Red Rock has gained an enviable reputation for producing superb ultra premium wines. They are handcrafted on the estate from vines that creep up the side of a dormant volcano west of Geelong. The mineral-rich soil, low rainfall and cool climate result in a unique terroir which, when coupled with sensitive winemaking, yields distinctly individual wines with power and finesse.

The 2008 Merlot reveals straightforward fruit, soft tannins and a mid-weight, fresh, somewhat simple style. It should be consumed over the next 2-3 years.

A sleeper of the vintage, as well as an outstanding bargain, the 2007 Merlot is fashioned from 50% Sonoma fruit, 10% from Napa, and 40% from Central Coast regions. Small amounts of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon have been added to the blend. Elegant mocha and dark berry fruit are followed by a medium-bodied, silky-textured red that tastes as if it should cost 2-3 times the price. It is meant to be drunk during its first 2-3 years of life to take advantage of its exuberant, fruity youthfulness.

Has great concentration of Black Cherry, plum and boysenberry fruits with a nice full-bodied middle and a long soft finish.

Herersquo;s what Gallo does so well, a huge production (more than 100,000 cases) of a pleasing, clean wine, at a decent everyday price. Plump and juicy, it pleases for the cherry jam, black raspberry tart, red currant, licorice and spice flavors. Finishes with real sophistication.
