Stephen Vincent Merlot California 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Rich dark ruby color with flavors of plum and berry. This full-bodied Merlot is produced from a careful blend of 70% Monterey and 30% Sonoma grapes. A balance of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon grape varietals to achieve bold plum and berry flavors with a long finish and just the right amount of soft tannin. A combination of French oaks adds delightful complexity to this delicious wine.

Nice aroma. Mellow, with sweet and sour notes and a little oak. Fairly robust.

Plum and spicy. It reminds be of a zin or Cotes du Rhone. A great buy for the price.
