I have never had Old Vine Merlot before. It was amazingly good. This will not be the last time I drink a bottle of this great wine.   -20 points

This was our first bottle from CWC which was a Christmas gift! We are hooked! I love reading about the family wineries. The Old Vine Merlot was so smooth, soft and sweet. Perfect for a cold evening!    -20 Points

I usually don't drink Merlots, usually it leaves a bitter almost metallic taste in my mouth. This Merlot was what I believe a Merlot should be. Oak notes, cherry and a light almost sweet that truly like to taste. This is very good wine and definitely will reorder. -20 Points
