Two Dog Vineyard Merlot From Graeser Winery Diamond Mountain District Merlot Red 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of cherries and cola with hints of spice box introduce this Merlot. The silky palate displays flavors of red cherry, juicy berries and a touch of caramel and mocha. The finish is soft and begs you to drink more. Juan Muñoz Oca - Winemaker

They produced estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, as well as wines with purchased fruit, including Semillon, Chardonnay, a NV Merlot, Sangiovese, and Zinfandel blends.

The winemakers' notes are pretty much dead on - cheries, cola, berries, caramel, mocha. You get this right from the start. I may have shunned this as being borderline too sweet, but then its other dimensions of tannins and a small taste of oak show up and redeems itself. The style is similar to the Red Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon I had a few days ago. This is just lighter bodied, even more easier drinking. Just like the Red Diamond CS, I can see myself popping this for a casual party with mismatch food, spicy asian cuisine or I can see this perfect for a summer picnic/bbq with ribs & bbq sauce, hamburgers or hotdogs. Its a definite crowd pleaser, with a price that will please me!

Nice easy drinking merlot. This will not blow you away but is nice for the deck where you have a mix of food.
