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.
Re: Very nice
This is a very nice merlot for the price.I opened it up after having a more expensive Merlot and it held its ground. I nice finish!
I got a bottle of this with my case club shipment, and was a little apprehensive, as it has been quite a while since I enjoyed a Merlot. I decanted this for 45 minutes and drank it with a perfectly grilled strip steak. It made me forget why I had moved on from merits (never saw "Sideways", so it wasn't that). Ordering a couple of cases tonight to make this my new daily drinker.
The value here is in the price along with the full body of this Merlot. I would definitely give this one a try if you're a Merlot fan.
Don’t Pass on This!
Don’t pass on this! Good value Merlot
Flavorful, very full bodied for a merlot.
A Worthy Merlot
Extra smooth, despite the high ABV. Lovely cherry notes give way to a cedar undertone, which is subtle but distinctive. Definite links to the Bordeaux/St. Emilion style. A worthy Merlot, at an amazing price.
Let's also note: Sideways (the otherwise excellent movie) was made 14 years ago. It's famous dissing of Merlot was delivered by an actor who didn't know Chianti was a red wine. Merlot's popularity dropped precipitously after that, and it still lingers. Get over it! This version will make you a believer.
This was an outstanding wine for the price! I will be ordering more!
Best Merlot Ever..
I had stopped drinking Merlots but decided to try this one. It's excellent and I am in love with Merlots again!
First bottle went down very quickly indeed. Exceedingly good QPR. Intend to buy lots more.
Great Value, Great Merlot!
Really enjoyed this wine. Tasted better with every sip. Have recommended it to my friends.
