Alexander Valley Vineyard Merlot
This wine was estate grown and bottled which generally means they tried harder to get it right. In this case they nailed it. This particular vintage is the 2013.
The wine has the perfect smell when you open the bottle. It isn’t inviting and at the same time it is exactly what you would hope for when smelling a wine.
The taste is smooth and not sweet or bitter. It is just an excellent wine.
I cannot find any downside to this wine. I would definitely serve it at a dinner party. It is very drinkable and not offensive in any way
I give this wine a 5/5.
