Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked strawberries, spices, oak, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, chocolates, light earth and peppercorn.

This is a very nice easy drinking red wine from Santa Barbara County. Fruit forward with mild complexity and a nice, smooth mouthfeel.
Good by itself or with food. Good right out of the bottle and better after an hour of airtime.
Pinot Noir for the Cabernet lover. Rich and extracted. Spicy and opulent. Alcohol is already nicely integrated.
I've had this wine many times before, but never so young. Surprisingly good at this age and Will be better in 5 years.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
14.9% alcohol by volume.

Mer Soleil named after the two forces of nature – “the sea and sun.” Grapes sourced from vineyards in the southern and middle areas of Santa Lucia Highlands, deep Ruby with youthful aromas of red fruits and smoky pepper spice. On the palate flavors of cranberry, raspberry and cherry with toasty baking spice, savory, good mouthfeel. Medium+ finish, fine tannins well integrated ending with fruit and a toasty spice character. — 6 days ago
Have had Stolman in restaurants before ( David Chang?) so went with this Northern Rhone style Syrah- me thinks the frigid temps outside despite heat lamps accented the fruit/Nerviness but nonetheless at least I enjoyed it. Think less gamey but some of that gorgeous high toned N Rhone fruit. Really delicious. Outside meal with family, in Chelsea NYC — 15 days ago
