Great for the price. Crisp, acidic, slightly tart. Summer wine and sunshine!

2014-Extraordinary Wine! I use this site In the ancient French practice of bargain hunting fine wines, but seldom take the time to comment - but must for this. Silky, Full flavor & body. Smooth entre, flow & finish, esp for 13.5%. Vintner - Well Done! May be the best Merlot I've tasted. Will plan stop-by if estate is open to visitors.

The Monterey County Merlot by Château Julien is the best Merlot from California that I've tried. The 2014 vintage is just now reaching maturity and is almost perfect. You should let the wine decant for at least 20 minutes before enjoying. I loved it!

Maybe the wine has gone bad, but you're hit with a strong alcohol taste. Not smooth at all.
