Wow!! This is a really good Merlot and this is coming from a wine drinker that doesnt tend to purchase or order Merlots. The color was beautiful- a deep garnet. The nose was appealing, definitely smelled vanilla and plum. It was soft and smooth on the palate. Seriously, one of the best wines from CA Wine Club that I have tasted. The taste was delicious- red berries and cherries. The finish was perfect. This Merlot is definitely a winner and one that we will be reordering.   -19 Points
