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.
Fruity with long finish...excellent!
Very fruity merlot, with surprising long finish. I love this wine, and ordered more after my first taste! Glad I ordered more so I can enjoy another bottle tonight. A bargain, folks!
This is a dark, meaty, full-bodied Merlot bursting with flavors. It is a great every day wine of excellent value. My husband who is an emerging wine drinker likes it a lot too.
Love this Merlot! I pretty much keep 6 bottles of it around all of the time and always get compliments on it when I serve it.
This is a good table wine. Not overly complex but full, smooth and rich.
I loved this Merlot, especially for the price. Quite jammy, easy to drink, and goes well with different foods (we’ve tried with many dishes).
This is a very reliable every day wine. My husband especially loves this for its smoothness, depth, and full flavor.
Lot 641 Full-Bodied and Full Flavor
For the money this is a very good valued wine. It shares a few attributes with cabernets in that medium to full bodied oaky taste. Years ago I loved a good bottle of merlot, but the typical style changed to a much lighter version. This Paicines lot 641 brings me back to days gone by, in a very good way!
Another winner from Cameron and a very good buy to boot!
Full bodied and deep
Quite surprised when I tried this side by side with a Cab. The Merlot was heavier on the palate and had a deeper taste, with earthiness and darker fruits. Unexpected, in a good way.
This is my favorite merlot in quite some time. After first purchase round I bought a bunch more.
Well balanced Merlot
Balanced and a great smooth Merlot with the vanilla undertones I like. I gave my wine snob daughter a bottle but it took her a couple months to give it a try but it certainly wowed her and now she's begging me for another bottle!
