Rex Goliath Merlot Monterey County Free Range 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

We really love this wine. Soft, supple, and complex. There is a certain elegance to this wine that fits our vision of the perfect Merlot: Pretty and seductive with a decidedly spicy nose of black cherry, cassis and cedar. Very ripe and round, almost like a Jolly Rancher candy. Mouth-filling flavors of plums, cherries and wild red berries dominate from start to finish. Good seam of acidity paired with soft tannins make this a wonderful wine for game fowl such as pheasant or duck. Try a nicely roasted Rock Cornish Game Hen...yum! - Winemaker Michael Kafka Awards & Reviews: Double Gold & 98 Points!

Rex Goliath:
At age 70, I have had at least 50 yrs. of a glass of wine after my evening meals. Just recently, I noticed the Rex-Goliath Chardonnay on the shelf in our local grocery store liquor department (I live in a very small town). I decided to try it. WOW!! It's like what one would imagine drinking a glass of satin would be like. SMOOTH AS SATIN and OMG so very DELICIOUS. You have a new customer... Read more

Just recently, I noticed the Rex-Goliath Chardonnay on the shelf in our local grocery store liquor department (I live in a very small town). I decided to try it. WOW!! It's like what one would imagine drinking a glass of satin would be like. SMOOTH AS SATIN and OMG so very DELICIOUS. You have a new customer from now on. I don't know how long you've been in business, however, I hope you are in business for a very very long time to come. I will definitely pass on my find to all of my friends. Read less

Meh. Didn't do much for me, but it wasn't bad.
