De Loach Vineyards Merlot 2005 California

Sometimes terroir can be so dominant in the flavors of the wine. This is definitely the case here. The wine tastes more like their Zinfandel and little like a Merlot. It’s not a bad wine, don’t get me wrong, just don’t expect it to have varietal tastes …

Description from

This is quite flavourful round and ready to drink. The aromas are expressive with spiced dark berry predominant along with nuances of lilac. The palate is treated to layers of sweet ripe fruit, black cherry mulberry and black currant. The tannins are plush and the tang from ripe pomegranate is evident and welcomed on the persistent finish. It’s one smooth number offering good value. (VH)  (89235) $15.95
