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.
Great daily wine.
Excellent value for a daily wine. Soft on the palate, which allows you to enjoy snacks without overpowering the food. Easy to drink, almost toooo easy.
Good daily drinker
Heavy spicy meals will overpower this wine. It's great with cheese and
This Merlot is nice and a great value. It is a bit more fruit forward than I prefer, but it is very drinkable! No complaints ; )
I have really enjoyed the Paicines offerings from CH. This merlot is smooth, rich easy drinking. Good for just a glass when relaxing, or for enjoying with a meal. Not too heavy if you're not a big cabernet fan, but definitely has meat on the bone. An easy pick for every day drinking.
Great wine, especially at this price
I haven't had Merlot much in years. Decided to forgive the varietal for the 1990s, and try again. Glad that I did. This wine is really enjoyable.
My husband and I enjoyed this wine! Not knowing what winery it was from
, we thought we would try CH wines. It was enjoyable., smooth is how we would describe it.
I enjoy all the wines I have had from CH, but this one was not one of my favorites. It is good with food, but not as enjoyable by itself. Not bad, just not my favorite.
Great Merlot Great Value
An excellent merlot, especially after decanting. The value is incredible. Might need to pick up more of this one.
I am a fan of Merlot and this one surprised me. Smoother than I expected on the tip of the tongue with a sharper back end. I'll grab a few more bottles before they're gone.
For $12 can't go wrong. Good structure for a budget merlot.
