Editorial Reviews for Wilson-Daniels Merlot Central Coast
Fresh and a touch funky on the nose with attractive herbal top notes over nuanced oak, blond tobacco and astringent red and blue fruits. This is well balanced on entry, medium-bodied and fairly transparent. Slight sour cherry and currant fruit on the palate are framed by gentle oak notes and some lovely herbal and floral accents. This shows impressive inner mouth perfumes at this price point, with good balance and a fine finish that picks up some cocoa accents. 87pts
Sulfur smelling or something similar, with a hint that almost smells like bologna/pastrami. I don't like the smell of this, but it is nicer when drinking. Easy.
Enjoyed this wine: medium-bodied and bright cherry flavor with notes of herbs.
