It’s amazing how a few lines in a movie can change the drinking habits of so many people. The best thing about the dip in Merlot’s popularity is the increase in Merlot’s quality and availability for the Merlot lover. Merlot has never offered such quality for the price. While many turn to Merlot for a soft, easy to drink alternative to Cabernet, this baby will destroy the image of Merlot being the lighter little brother to Cab. Big, round and luscious are the trademarks of this beast. It offers all the complexities great Merlot’s are known for. Wallow in the cherry, chocolate and blueberry. Cap it off with allspice and truffles and you will have your friends saying, “I’m drinking the F’n Merlot!” The wine is aged 11 months in 20% New French Oak and 80% in a variety of one-year-old French and American Oak Barrels.
