Napa Valley Merlot

Duckhorn Vineyards

Napa Valley Merlot 2016

A pre-Mothers day meal that included an experiment of smoked fish and this was one of the two bottles we decided to pair. While it may not have matched the rub spices exactly, this bottle rarely (if ever) is a poor choice. A classic that we will keep having in the future. — 12 days ago

World’s End makes nice wines. Always grab it when I see it. Black fruit and firm tannins, good length. Feels like I stole it for $35. — 19 days ago

Reserve Lot# 226 Oak knoll Merlot 2020

Color of dark purple. Nose of cherry jam, blackberry, medicinal strawberry, and milky vanilla. Taste of dark fruits with slight sweetness and mellow tannins, ripe grape, and grape jam. Aftertaste shows just a bit more spicy and tobacco leaves note, plus nice acidity. Clean and enjoyable. — 17 days ago

If Sideways were made in 2022 the line would be “I am not going to drink a ____ing Malbec!”

Stags' Leap Winery

Napa Valley Merlot 2018

Pop-and-pour through an aerator. Nose: burned orange. Fresh turned soil. Cranberry. Rose (very subdued). A little more anonymous than I had hoped, but well made - “elegant.” Taste: red fruits (ripe pomegranate), dry tobacco, aromatic wood. Coconut. Bay leaf. Chalk and clay. 90-91. EDIT: A LOT of raspberry comes out with air. Also, a bit of pineapple (?). Point being: tart fruit. — 11 days ago

Harris Vineyard Merlot 2016


Really excellent Merlot and drinking nicely. Still a big wine but mellowing a bit and definitely interesting flavor with an earthy build. Hard to save these but worth it. — 5 days ago
