One of the Central Coast’s best appellations for Bordeaux varietals, the Paicines AVA is a hidden gem found just past the Pinot and Chardonnay vineyards of the Monterey Coast on the other side of the Gabilan Mountains.
Sourced from one of the best-known and well-respected $40+ red programs on the entire Central Coast, Lot 641 is built to the nines – farmed with the utmost of care in the alluvial flows of the San Benito River and made in a ripe, lush-yet-extracted style and aged in over 50% new oak, this “Merlot with muscle” is certain to gather the attention of the most arduous Cabernet lovers.
Pleasantly surprised by quality of the merlot. Enjoyable wine at an incredible value. Will be adding more to our stock.
Well described by Cameron Hughes. I think most Cab drinkers would like this wine. I sensed a woody and coffee smell. The wine may a bit out of balance by the overriding tannin component. It grabs you immediately and lingers, though does tail off on the finish. I’m drinking about 30 minutes after opening so it may be early. Great buy at this price.
Great Merlot for the price!
Really nice full Merlot, very smooth and peppery. Can't beat it for the price!
Another great wine from this region. Will definitely be looking for more. Can't beat it for the price.
This Pacines Merlot is a great everyday drinking wine at a great price!

Like an old friend...
This Lot 641 2015 Paicines Merlot is oh so dark I can barely see through it. Delicious! You can usually find me browsing the aisles reaching for Cabernets, but now I can easily see myself coming back to the Merlot; especially at these prices!
Unbelievable wine for the price. Rich full fruit with perfect tannins and structure. Hard to believe this wine is under $25 much less $13! Ordered a case after the first glass.
A fuller body merlot than most. You get some soil and oak on the finish. I prefer the Cab but this was very close. If you haven't had a Merlot in awhile you might want to give this one a shot.
