Bullied and accused, the only crime Merlot has committed is that of luxury. The suppleness of Merlot can not be denied, this Guenoc California Merlot offers ample textured tannins to drape the cherry and dark chocolate flavor… Merlot is back! Since the 2004 release of the movie “Sideways” Merlot sales have suffered. For the savvy oenophile the result has been almost a decade of great value. Merlot, at its finest, is perhaps the best of the Bordeaux grapes. The Guenoc California Selection Merlot continues this value stream and rewards those who break from the herd.
