Big sour cherry and oak spice on the nose. Ink, kirsch and light hints of tomato. On the palate, it's bold and dry. Currant, herb, spice and oak vanilla. Creme de cassis liquer. Feels thick in the mouth and is big and lush. Great for steak. Oaky finish. 6/2/12

Distinct olive brine on the nose with some black fruit and cheese. If you love a dirty martini, perhaps with swiss-stuffed olives, you'll love this. Ripe black fruits and olive brine echoed on the palate with truffles and a rich, velvety mouthfeel. Balanced acidity, very soft tannins, lasting finish.

Good merlot! Has a bitter bite for an after taste but has a very smooth taste to it.

Sebastiani Merlot has all the signature attributes of solid Merlot including black tea, dried herbs, black cherries and wild berries. It is ripe without being over-ripe. The new oak barrels add notes of espresso and mocha to the nose plus sweet vanilla to the palate.

Leese-Fitch blends their Merlot from several vineyard sites throughout California, and the resulting wine is quite harmonious, aromas of caramelized apple, fresh boysenberry syrup, sage, and light clove.

Openly fruity, ripe and fleshy, with a supple, complex band of plum, currant and black cherry fruit that has a tasty overlay of cedary, spicy oak. Very complete and balanced. Drink now through 2008.

Merlot's gotten knocked around lately because of Miles's distain in "Sideways," but honestly, he couldn't be more off-base! Try Sebastiani's: the velvety texture is pumped full of blueberry-cherry fruit, with an enticing thread of vanilla weaving throughout.

A light, fruity, spicy California Merlot, with generous plum and blackberry aromas and flavors shaded by vanilla and clove touches on the finish. Drinkable now.

Here's a tasty rendition of a medium-intensity Merlot from one of the first families of Sonoma wine. The deep red color is almost opaque, with purple highlights. Cherry and sandalwood spice aromas carry through to the flavors, with supple, bitter chocolate tannins. Round and balanced, this is the closest you'll get to a big, rich style in this price category. It will match well with all the steak, roasts and robust everyday dishes you can name.
